Que beleza, xará! Agora viraste encantador de serpentes? Muito legal mesmo. Parabéns pelo achado.

Thanks Hema:-)She was on the ciment,caching sun,and i saw her ,at first it seems like a wood stick,or a bit of rope on the floor,but it was a little snake,my backyard,is just the last backyard before the weet meadow,so i have all those creatures because of the location and because i provide water in a little pond all the year,inclusive when it dont rain,like that we atract many salamanders,frogs,insects,slugs and snails and some times snakes,that search for mosty during more dried periods
