Is it a Snake?

Snakes are numerous everywhere, I think. I did not see much of them in the nature before I come to live here. First of all, I've seen a very great snake, about 2 m long, in the first months of my life here, and than, in the years that pass, different species of snakes. I think, there are about 5 or 7 species of snakes here. I wrote about them in this blog much too. They are: black, grey with 2 black lines long the body, grey without lines, sand-yellow, viper and grey with pictures. The first 2 can reach 2 and more meters. Viper is the only dangerous snake here and is till 60 cm long.

There were some years when it was unpossible to live here. Snakes were everywhere. Those black mostly. They loved to stay in the henhouse. But we met them on the ground too. Once I killed one little black snake and it was very bad. An other time I found a yellow snake on the road and took it far from the cars. I don't like that the people kill them. One time I've seen a black, I think, snake fly. Yes, it's true. It was on the rock, and when I came nearer, it saw me and was afraid so much to jump very high and disappear in the grass about 20 cm over the place where it was.

Quitz: find a snake on the photo.


I wanted so much to make some photos of the snakes to show them to you but I did not see them. About a week ago I turned home from Salerno and saw somebody running away on the road for me. They are stupod, the snakes, you know. They have to stay where they are and nobody will see hem but they want to run away ... under your feet! It's always so.

So, I've seen it crossing my way.
This time I was more clever, I took my cell and made some photos.
The only thing seemed strange to me.
The snake had a head similar to a lizard.
Could it be a lizard without legs and not a snake?
