Snakes on the Plains

Yes, another snake - or, perhaps, the same one from yesterday.

The behaviour of this snake was unusual. Generally when a snake is threatened it will slither away if at all possible. This one stood its ground, hissed, buzzed, and struck even though it could have easily retreated to a woodpile a few feet away. No matter - The Land is a snake sanctuary and all non-venomous reptiles are welcome there.
