THIS was Zachary's discovery when going out to the mail box this morning!
Not exactly "Eww", but Yikes definitely!
First we determined that this four foot long guy (with a three inch diameter - did I mention yikes?!!) did NOT have rattles on his tail.
Then I let everyone get a little closer.
The way I got out of letting them catch it, was the truthful fact that I don't know my Colorado snakes very well.
(you never know, there MIGHT be rattle-less Rattle Snakes?!).
I think we determined it to be a Bull snake, and as his hissing told me he wasn't a particularly friendly fellow... we kept our distance!
F.Y.I., I did consider this "school" today! ;-)
