Staying Cool by Staying Put
American Prairie, Montana
In spite of my nosing closely around it’s puddle, this snake showed no interest in actually leaving the water for safety in the nearby brush. Maybe I wasn’t really making it nervous–although it’s squirming seemed to indicate otherwise. Or maybe he was sure I wasn’t going to wade out in the mud to actually try and grab it.

It must have been *really* hot for a cold-blooded snake to prefer cool water to the ground!!!
Strangely enough, it was not particularly hot that day. Perhaps that snake just liked to swim.
