Slithering Serpents

We went to a celebration at a great natural history center that emphasizes all things hands-on.  Above, J and R are digging for worms.  They didn't find any.  But the dirt found them.
So we moved on to something bigger and better.  Snakes.
It may look like R is backing away out of fear.  But no, she was just trying to get a clearer view of the snake's face.  I guess she needed to see what sort of mood it was in.
J would have happily brought one home with him.  He was entranced.

He is currently in negotiations with his father about getting one as a pet. 
We'll see how that turns out. 
But if they get one as big as this, somebody will have to move out just to make room.  Or maybe the snake could just eat the dog and then curl up in his trademark spot on the sofa.

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails!!! J looks like he's right in his element.
