Guess what we saw....

So, yesterday I took Ebi-kun to the hoken centre for his polio vaccination, we took a taxi there because the weather wasn't great although it had stopped raining it was still really windy. The whole vaccine thing was all straight forward and we decided to walk down the train station and catch the train home, on our way we came across this fella....


After some research I think it is a Japanese rat snake, we didn't get too close because I had no idea if it was dangerous or not and coming from a country where we don't really have snakes (well there are 3 species but apart from seeing a dead adder in Scotland when I was a kid, I have never seen one in the wild) seeing one out and about is a bit scary. (I imagine all you Aussies are laughing your socks off at me now!)
