Quango-Bingo Travels: France, March 2012 - Day 3 (continued): Snake Eyes!
I remember once, when I was a very young Quango-Bingo, we visited family in Germany. It was the Summer time and we went to a lake for a swim. In the reeds, my uncle (let’s call hum Uncle Awesome) found and caught about 5 baby grass snakes.
He brought them back in a sandwich tin so that we could all get a better view. They were tiny, thin, very lively and absolutely fascinating. I was in awe of their beauty.
Since then, I have never again seen a snake in the wild. This despite always looking out for them and occasionally finding old snake skins whilst out and about.
One day I will, but until then, I will have to be content with going to see them in such places as the lovely Ile aux Serpents.
