As you can sorta' see part of his snakey self (middle of the picture) was bigger than normal. Lexi (and of course the boys) felt it after daddy's encouragement and they say they could feel eggs - whole and crushed along that area.
Alexis was the brave one (she's always been the outdoor, touch-every-bug person) and so she held the snake - proudly, if I do say so myself. Caleb held Sir Snakey also but I'm not gonna show that picture. Daddy offered (more like pleaded) to let me hold Sir Snakey but I tried politely to decline. So, Alexis, Caleb and Daddy handled him. Seth touched its throat but that was pretty much it.
Here's a video I took. Nothing gross - you can really see how big the snake was. Lexi's also holding him in the video.
Okay, I"m not gonna say anything about Sir Snakey's fate!
P.S - Daddy's very good at handling animals (like he knows how to approach them and catch them without hurting himself), so don't worry about daddy getting hurt! :) He enjoys catching "wildlife" for us to look out and see how beautiful is Jesus' creation.
