Milk Snake

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Today I found a beautiful little milk snake that had died underneath the knockout rose bush.  She was only 8 inches or so long.  We have lots of these snakes in our garden and they’re very friendly and eat mice and other rodents.  Unfortunately they resemble copperheads, a very dangerous snake and so spotting a milk snake can be a little alarming.  A friend of mine examined the little snake and said she had been killed by a cat.  The only cat we have up here is a Lynx.  I’m surprised the Lynx is hunting so close to our home!
