Hoop snakes

The squid-dude recently posted some scribblings about how, as a child growing up in B.C., he had to be wary of the tree octopus.

It reminded me of the times I was was warned to not tarry to long at the bottom of grassy hills for fear of being attacked by a hoop snake.

Never actually saw one, but my Dad swore that they were common enough to be feared.

  1. This time of year, it’s the snow snakes. They can live in the deep snow at the sides of the road. Man when I was in the Yukon for winter camping (ah, the joys of military service), we carried a rifle… bears, wolves and fucking snow snakes.
