That Snake is Where??

Here’s a pretty cool email that I received from The Dodo this morning. See if you can find the snake in the photo. I couldn’t without cheating. The answer is below so if you get stuck, scroll down to discover how well this Copperhead hides in plain sight.

Enjoy!

Some animals simply prefer to blend in — and here’s one of them.

Believe it or not, there is a snake in this photo below. He’s so perfectly camouflaged among the dried leaves, it’s nearly impossible to spot him.

Go ahead, give it try.

Twitter user @SssnakeySci, a herpetology student from Florida, recently shared the mind-boggling photo — and it’s sent the internet into a tizzy, receiving thousands of likes and retweets.

The general consensus seems to be: that snake is super hard to find (if he can be found at all). Here is just a sample of the response.

Still, even with her annotations, seeing him takes a keen eye.

Here he is, a little closer up. Can you see him now?

Nicely done, snake!

Baby Deer Rudie: A Must-See Feel-Good

Today I decided to plug back in for a minute and take a break from my blogging break to share this adorable video of Baby Deer Rudie, who was found at 2-days old, missing half his leg and given a new lease on life. Check out his amazing transformation as he settles in to his new home and grows to love his new family and furry friends.

 

I love this little guy! I want a Rudie in my life…

Now, didn’t that just warm your heart and make your day more special??

Animals have the power to bring out the best in people. May an animal bless your life today…

 

Iguana and Bulldog Share a Nap & BOTB Break

How adorable is this??!

 

Iguanas are cool. Other than seeing them in aquariums, I’ve only been around an iguana once. But it was such a cool experience. He seemed so affectionate. I was lightly stroking his head and face and after a few strokes, he tilted his head and closed his eyes, like he was really digging it. It was so sweet! It made me consider getting one. This video has reignited that desire…

On another note, I’m going to be taking a break from Battle of the Bands and from blogging in general for just a short while. This video made me realize that I need to take a little time for myself and get some rest. I’m still considering whether or not I’m going to participate in the Blogging A-Z Challenge in April. I’ll keep you all posted.

And now, I’m signing off for a much needed nap…

 

Battle of the Bands RESULTS: Sweet Home Alabama vs. Southern Man

battle-of-the-bands-botb-top-photo

It’s Results Time for my most recent battle, pitting Lynryd Skynryd’s Sweet Home Alabama against Neil Young’s Southern Man.

I suspected going in that this really was a No Contest battle and the results went on to prove that true. I assumed that Sweet Home Alabama was going to reign supreme in this contest and that they did! However, I was surprised that the battle didn’t end in a Shut Out. Neil Young did end up getting a few votes and I was very pleased about that, especially because I think his performance of his song was fantastic.

The final tally:

Lynyrd Skynryd’s Sweet Home Alabama:  11 votes (including my own)

Neil Young’s Southern Man:  3 votes

This was a fun battle to put together and I’m very grateful to Stephen McCarthy for passing his great idea onto me. Thanks Stephen!

On another note: I will be missing the next two battles as I’m taking some time off. I’ll be back for the March 15th battle.

To close us out, I’ll leave you with my favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song, Gimme Back My Bullets:

 

As always, thanks for your participation. See you all soon!
