I have to think about it. About good deeds. That' s really amazing fact about Red-lined Garter snake. I thought all snakes changes their skin once a year.

We had what turned out to be a pregnant female in a very large cage in the Bio Lab ( my past life).  We kept dead frogs in the freezer (frogcicles)
to thaw and feed her.  I forget how often.  They poop like a overfed seagull.  You can't just give her the dead frog, she would drop it.  Instead, you had to play tug-of-war with her so she got the idea(?) that the dead frog was putting up a bit of a struggle.

Then, her skin would look all milky/dusty for a couple of days.  She would soak in her water bowl to soften it and rub it off against a branch/stick, kind of inside out like a sock.

The cage front was 1/4" mesh.  One morning, we found about 15 babies, the size of pencils, all over the lab.  I don't remember what happened to them.
We went out in the country and let her go in a froggy wet ditch.

This is my latest work in process. I got a short story for it. i got several old cypress trees in my garden, one of them was broken by the wind and rain.
I consider this work like reincarnation of an old cypress tree. I'm planning to do more wood burning on it.
as usually your comments are welcome. Sometimes I want to have more narrations for my works, to create some mythology:)
That looks like one, smug, saitfied cat. It must have just swallowed the canary! Are you going to place this cat in the garden where it originated as a cypress tree? Whimsical quality to your work!
