The area we live in has very few snakes. The only snakes we usually see are little garter snakes.
The other day my husband came home from work and said "You've got to see what we have out here!" This snake was sitting on our front walk, right by the garage.
He was a big one - about 2 feet long and when we came near, he flattened his head like a cobra and hissed at us. Bob knew what type it was, and that it wasn't poisonous, so we weren't scared. However, I didn't care for it next to the house, so he took brought it over to the woods.
It's an Eastern Hognose Snake, also known as a Puff Adder.
