Description

This snake wandered up to the little frog pond near the house while I was working on re-landscaping it. It seemed to not be concerned with my presence and was not even bothered by the appearance of my bouncy vociferous 8 year old. It had recently shed and the old skin still covered the head and the tip of the tail. Eventually it chased a medium/small bullfrog from under the lip of the fake pond and proceeded to soak it's head in the water for a considerable amount of time...presumably in an attempt to loosen the remaining dead skin.
