Snakes on the lane
This morning, taking my dog for a walk, I came across some roadkill in the lane. Normally, you find squirrels, rabbits, and sometimes foxes. This time, coiled up neatly but a little bit squashed, I came across a snake.
It's about 12/13 inches long, arranged like a coaster (died in its sleep, I guess) and marked with green/brown diamonds - as well as many tyre prints.
Is this native to England, or a misplaced promotional gimmick for Snakes on the Plane? Either way, I took a photo with my phone, and if I could post it - I would. Right now, it's very flat indeed. Possibly beyond recognition.
Alive, it could've killed me in seconds. Really.
