  1. Bob – What is that instrument you are examining the rough green snake with?

  2. Randy: I think that’s just his binocs from a sort-of sideways angle.

  3. Oh, duh. What’s funny is I have an old pair of Leica binos that I always use in reverse mode as a magnifying glass. Something about the small size and the strap that looked like some kind of handle threw me off. Thanks Joyce!

  4. and what kind of snake is that? Do you know the worlds smalles snake “size of a quarter” was discovered several weeks ago?
