Rattler at the back door
Last night my old friend Dave Rentz of Bunyipco heard a buzzer when he stepped out the back door. He's an incurable insect collector and was checking the black light for microleps. The snake was behind a crock in the corner.
We carefully escorted the visitor down the path, and measured it as it rib-walked against the wall -- 30 inches.
It was as willing to go, and we were just as willing to see it go (especially the Redhead, who watched at a safe distance).
Rentz and I are just back from New Mexico, and I have plenty of material for the blog, including the photos from the McMillan Ranch. You'll be hearing more from me soon.
