|Our new friend.|
In two years of living in Indiana, we'd had yet to see a snake. I thought they'd be incredibly prolific with all the forested areas they could hunt and hide or the fairly temperate climate. Really, there probably are a lot of snakes and for those reasons, they're rarely seen. As much as I love animals, it's always a little unnerving moving to a new rural area because there are new critters to learn about. Thankfully, most are benign but there's always the chance they're not.
