Midnight to Midnight

Not long ago I posted the 7th of my 24 climate change sonnets, as part of my midnight-to-midnight event (explained in this entry). You can follow the action here.

In the meantime, this guest post appeared yesterday. Thanks to AO Bibliophile for the opportunity!

Earlier, Mary found this in her office:

I think this is a Brahminy Blind Snake (a.k.a. Flower Pot Snake), Ramphotyphlops braminus. From the U Florida description, the size matches, as do the color and the smooth and shiny scales. This species was first reported in Florida in 1983 and is found pretty much throughout the state. "Outside of Florida, it has been widely introduced to many tropical localities and is considered the most widespread snake species in the world." And it's parthenogenic! Cool. :-) Mary captured her and we escorted her outside.
