ENV: Not-Really-a-Cat-Friday

Yep, it's time for the Friday Ark at The Modulator. This week the kids found a hatchling DeKay's or Texas Brown Snake, Storeria dekayi texana. The thing was all of three inches long but the little booger packed a strike -- you can see here that it was defensive during the entire encounter. The goofy looking spot between its head and body is a drop of water, which should give some size scale, and of which the thing wouldn't let me remove for photogenicity.
