Mariton: Eyes Greater than Stomach?
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
I was checking trails (and walking pretty quickly) when the slightest movement caught my attention. My camera just happened to be handy and I was able to snap a few photos. The snake didn’t like my shadow on the trail and quickly slithered away. I have to wonder if I stumbled upon a hunting scene, or if these two individuals just happened to be in the same place at the same time. (The snake seemed a little “put out” as it left.) It is hard to imagine – that is one big mouthful. If I had been just walking without a particular purpose, I would have been moving more slowly and been able to watch what transpired.
