The truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. And when David came up to tell me had just driven over three snakes with his forklift, I thought it was incredible.

David had been working at his desk when he heard a rustling on a shelf above him. He carefully traced the noise to a document box, which he brought down and placed on the floor.

Looking around his shed to see what was the most destructive tool he could use on whatever was in that box, David spied the forklift. So he hopped on and drove over the box, crushing three snakes that called the box home.

Snakes, September 2009
The three snakes were hiding in a cardboard document box.

It looks like these are (were) harmless tree snakes. Sorry, snakes. Wrong place, wrong time.
