Lions & tigers & bears...oh no... just serpents!

It's been hot and humid for the past few days. The kids have been playing outside early every morning before it gets too hot to go outside - that means about 5:30 in the morning they go out and come inside around eight. They have breakfast and then go to bed for a long nap. 

Being up at that hour of the day and being outside allows the kids to see different kinds of wild life they would normally have missed. Number one on the list unfortunately seems to be snakes, particularly horned vipers which are nocturnal (and venomous). They bury themselves in the sand and lie in wait for their prey - rodents, lizards and other small things. They don't usually bite humans.
