First snake of the year

My kids and their friends love to catch snakes. They usually let them loose in our backyard, where we will see them from time to time, sunning after providing some ecological garden pest control. Matthew and his friend J caught a bigger than usual specimen today. I love the fact that at 14, they are out catching snakes rather than playing video games. Matthew learnt that even non- venomous snakes bite- yes, we are keeping it well disinfected. Now he knows how not to pick up a snake.

While I'm not HAPPY he got bit, I consider it a valuable learnng experience. Andrew got bit too, but only once.It's like with cats- the only way some kids will learn how to treat them is to get scratched.
