20060914 - Misfit & another snake - 106-0693 - reaching and ready

Those claws are crazy!


Misfit is more-than-ready to swipe at the snake. Notice his evil eye!


For video of Misfit playing with the snake:


Back-story: We noticed Misfit had something, and it was a snake! He dropped it into his water fountain, and we had to take it apart. We let him play with it for awhile, then put it in a bottle. The bottle drove him crazy -- he attacked the movement within every 5 minutes for days. It was his new favorite toy -- the pet of our pet. So we kept the snake in captivity for a week or so. He was not interested in our house crickets, which we joked that Misfit caught for him. After a week, it not only needed probably needed food, but also stank, so we released it. It did need to be "watered" a few times during the week, too, which no doubt increased the stink-power.


Misfit, claws, green eye, snake.
