Really Rad Reptiles!

 5 AM visitor of the night.... a great big green tree frog, common here and very LOUD... it was dark out and he was on the sliding glass door. I turned on the floodlights outside and this was the best I could do. don't you just LOVE those little sucky cups he has for feet? He was about 3 or 4 inches long.
 6:30 AM I am sitting at the laptop and in comes Bob behind me and says

"LOOK what I found when I put the garbage out..."

He was holding the snake, it was dark, only light was from the computer so I Shrieked

"Why did you bring it in the house?????"
his answer " Because it is a rubber one".      sooooooo Snap!    BTW it gave  him a startled moment to seeing it laying in the gutter.
 Snap!
 Snap!
 Snap!
 Snap!  and need I say more?
ok, so i have 3 post on one day,,, someone shoot me please,

Ooookay... If yesterday was Sleepy Day then today must be House-Climbing Frog Day, all over the Earth. I'll make sure my windows are closed tonight. See my friend GB's post today.

Ewwww...Snakes give me the absolute willies.
That rubber snake is just too real looking.
Love the tree frog though.
I guess I have to remember you live in a tropical climate.
We just get rattlers and skunks, oh and alligator lizards.

oh my gosh would have scared me....of course you had to take the opportunity to do a little photo shoot...after all you are the Mad Snapper...and you can do it...

Val said...

Oh Snap!! love it, not the snake, just your snapping of the photos!!

Love that tree frog. I haven't seen any yet when I've been down there. And the snake, oh how I hate them. Just as long as they go about their own business and stay away from me, I'm ok.

Even knowing its fake, I am shivering!

GB said...

I'd have been really alarmed if someone brought a snake into my home in New Zealand. We don't have snakes here.

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, it's just a little snake even though it's fake. I rarely see them in our yard and when I do it's always a harmless one. But I keep a close eye on where I step when I'm out exploring.

I remember those green tree frogs. Those things are noisy.

SANDRA: talk to me: is that a real one...or a rubber snack???
I'm trembling here.....just thinking...
Oh...dear, dear.....

My two sisters are very scared of snakes, I wasn't when I was a teenager.

Naughty number one brother in law slipped your rubber snake into their bathroom and went out. When Sis R got out, she screamed and screamed. The kids hear her, but couldn't help her because the door was locked.

I don't know how she managed to get the door open. When husband came home, she warned, don't you ever do it again. Just as well, I wasn't pregnant, I could have miscarraiged. He never did it again.

Wow, that snake looks so very real!

I'm so glad that snake was NOT REAL. Is Bob trying to give you nightmares? :))

Rose said...

Three in one is better than 0 in three as I do quite often!

Debra Dickinson said...

Whew! I am finally caught up! This gave me the heebie-geebies! (I think that's how you spell it, LOL.) And I'm a biologist!! Love the little frog and his sucker feet. Way, way cool.

The pics of the abandoned rescue farm made me very, very sad. Your friends' new dog made me happy again (was going in reverse).

I have missed your blog MadSnapper! Glad I'm back! :)

HugZ to you and yours,
D

Hello Sandra!:) I like their suction pads too, such adorable creatures. I laughed at the snake scare. It really looks like the real deal, and your photos are quite scary.:)
