|I hate snakes. This corn snake was under the cushions of the patio sofa where my child was playing.
We have also had water moccasins galore, a couple pygmy rattlers (probably more than we have noticed–they are smaller than I expected), and tons of black snakes (which of course we leave alone so they can fend off these nasty ones). But still, they are all disgusting. There are a couple black snakes that live in the bushes outside my study window, and they sometimes give me an ugly, ugly surprise.
