Snake Skin

Skin of common garter snake
 
We have many snakes here about the house and this summer we saw then in all sizes. This is one of the many snake skins shed by the garter snakes this year.Catgirl and Ironman loved finding them, and loved watching the snakes sunning on the front stoop. This skin is particularly "gruesome" because it looks as if the snake's eye was pulled off with its skin (see below)! But it wasn't, of course. Some reflection or something is creating that impression. For more garter snake photos, visit my Common Garter Snake Set on Flickr. These skin photos are near the bottom of the set. Click on any photo in the set to view it and right click the photo to view it larger size.
