Bull Snake

Linda Pierson from Just Another Day on the Prairie in Alberta, Canada, said I could use this photo of a bull snake sunning itself.  A friend of her’s took the photo.  It is such an unusual place to find bull snake I just had to share it will all of You!

On barbed wire no less!

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Um- so very few occassions that I’m glad to be exactly where I am but this is most definitely one of them! So not a snake person although he looks very relaxed and comfy if that’s possible!


  2. That is a very fine snake! And such a good fellow to have around. Eats rodents and gophers and isn’t dangerous. Although, if you really annoy them by picking them up incorrectly they will bite…(wonder how I know that?)


  3. Great picture! Thanks for sharing Linda’s picture with us. I’m not fond of snakes, but I will tolerate bull snakes as they are great a keeping the vermin down and I’ve heard people say here that if one has bull snakes, you won’t have rattlesnakes around. Don’t know if that is true or not, but sure sounds good to me!

    I love your header, Linda! Blessings!


  4. What strikes one is the way these creatures achieve balance. And notice the way he has taken a ‘grip’ on the post! Wonderful.

    Without wanting to scare You, would like to share that in India, we find them at times, more often at night, draped on Gates! Since many of our gates are flimsy ones, just to keep out stray goats and all, We keep opening and closing them quite often indeed.

    What I mean to say is, Watch out in these ways too. Regards.
