I had posted previously about seeing a snake. That post was illustrated with a photo from a Swedish website. Now I've gone one better with an actual Aspö snake! The photo was provided by Margaret, who writes:
"This is taken last summer...my Mom, Dad, and I were walking back to our veranda after a visit over at Ann & Dave's, and Mom pointed out the snake. It was right outside of our little earth cellar. I bent down to take the photo and as soon as I snapped, the snake shot quickly under the deck of the house."
As long as they don't bother me, they are welcome to live under my house. Same goes for snails. Moose, too, are welcome (not under the house, obviously). Ticks, however, are right out.
