Snake Skin

I found this snake skin in the garden – this was a bit of a relief as we hadn’t seen any sign of the adders who normally live on the compost heap. Snakes shed their skins rather than a few cells at a time like us.

Here is the underside – note the scales are more rectangular than the top side.

This is the top side and you can actually see the snakes patterning – I don’t actually know what type of snake this belongs too.

My little girl was a bit worried that it was a dead snake so we had to lots of explaining which ended up in some very interesting conversations.
