Watch your step.

I accidentally stepped on this fellow at Glen Rose State Park in Texas.  I don’t think I did any damage to him– I caught myself before landing with my full weight.  He was deeply unhappy with me, and he turned on me and gave me a severe tongue lashing (er… hissing).  I felt bad for the poor fellow.  He is just an ordinary rat snake.  Perfectly harmless, unless you happen to be a rodent.  Wasn’t his fault, that I put my big foot on him.  He clearly thought I should have watched my step.   I apologized, but, really, what can you say to a snake?

Please let us know what you think about what we see.
