Let's see if you can guess this animal that I saw during my hike last Saturday to Big Run in Shenandoah National Park. Scroll down slowly to uncover the clues.
Like you, I have a backbone.
I am cold blooded, unlike you.
I am a carnivore, 100%. Keep your nasty salad, give me a delicious, fat, wriggling earthworm!
I almost always only eat live prey, and I swallow it whole, alive, and struggling.
If you don't know a lot about me, you may fear me.
I have no legs at all, but can move around, swim, and even climb just fine without them.
Yell as loud as you like, but I cannot hear you.
I am not poisonous, but grab me, and I may bite you. I will certainly release an awful smelling (and tasting) musk.
I give birth to live young, but I am no mammal. You probably already figured that out, though.
I have a variety of color patterns to my skin, but I am most commonly thought of as having yellowish stripes.
Have you figured it out yet?I am a garter snake!
