Snake Alarm!

When Benicio moved the big drum where we throw our trash in, he jumped and screamed, because he saw a snake curled up underneath. Although we had several people look at the picture, we are not sure what it is. Of course, everybody said it was the Fer-de-Lance, one of the most poisonous snakes here in the country, but I am still not sure. They smashed it immediately (here, most people don't know very much about snakes, so if they encounter one it gets killed right away, just to make sure it can't harm anyone. Of course, this means that really good snakes such as the snail snake or a harmless garden snake get killed as well ...). Well, if anyone wants to try to find out what it really was ... here are some pictures!!
