Thirsty Thursday

Hello folks,

We squirrels  have had a busy couple of days and fell behind at The Squirrel Nutwork. But that has given us a chance to find out it’s World Snake Day!

Garter Snake

Please join us in supporting snake awareness in a positive way. Think of how many more pesky mice we’d have competing for our acorns…or finding your vine ripe tomatoes.

This little Eastern Garter Snake grabs up those mice, as well as slugs and worms from your garden, giving them the nickname ‘gardener snake’. They are a species that prefers a damp area, like to swimming and catch fish and small amphibians.

If your snake knowledge is sorely lacking, visit National Geographic or Care2 to learn more!

Snakes: Give ’em a break!

  1. Aw, garter snake! I was lucky enough to visit the garter snake pits in Narcisse, MB earlier this year and we saw loads of these little guys.

    Fab photo. I wish I had a slug-eating snake in my garden.

Drop us a nut to find!
