Garter Snakes are common on the Mendonoma Coast. They can be several feet long. They eat snails and banana slugs and pretty much everything else they come across as they are carnivorous. Luckily for Huckleberry, he is way too big to attract this snake's attention.
Huckleberry does not like snakes or reptiles. I've seen him jump up into the air and BACKWARDS when he sees one slither along. Recently Rick and I spotted a Garter Snake on a forest path. As you can see, Huckleberry saw it too.
The snake is in the right lower corner. And Huckleberry's fur is standing up on his back. A fun photo for you today!
