Theda Tuesday




Here's an interesting article about opossums. Why you should brake for opossums. We may not find them very cute, but they're excellent tick destroyers.

P.S. Normally it'd be hard to get a pic of a snake like this, but it was shedding. King snake, in my opinion.

Linking to Nature Notes (#314). Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

love the view thru theda's ears to the squirrel.

i never minded possums until they began spreading a virus that can be fatal to horses. not such a fan now...

I do love your sweet Theda. The snake is cool but I am glad it is not in my yard. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

Sometimes I wish I could shed my skin and get a new one. Your dog looks so gentle ! I like big dogs.

Ah very good to know, because it seems the ticks aren't as bad as they should be, thankfully and yet anyway! Truth is I brake for living things in the road! Theda Tuesday rocks! But you knew I'd love it! If it has dogs I totally like it! Enjoy your evening.

Hello....Thank you for linking into Nature Notes this week. I love Theda... My cats do love the hunt..from inside the house that is but the screens, not so much with the holes they can put in it. I had read that about ticks somewhere and I have seen one here only once. I like them. I also like snakes and you got a good photo.. The Mr. Linky has a hard time with symbols and other languages with differing characters.. It turns them into something unreadable, so I have to take shorten your blog title in the linky. I am sorry about that...Michelle

We have ticks so badly!

Every day should be a Theda day. Neat shot of the snake.

Nancy Chan said...

Never like ticks. I am terrible of snakes. Want to have nothing to do with them!

Sharon Wagner said...

Yikes! Quite the snake.
