Iraqi Critters

Besides the "neighbors" outside the walls we have to be concerned with, there are also "neighbors" inside the walls that could cause problems as well. There are several wild critters running around Camp Victory. The most abundant are the jackals. They are very skittish though, so they are hard to get pics of. The little guy above is the 2nd deadliest snake in Iraq, the saw-toothed viper. He was found a couple of weeks ago slithering around our work trailers. Needless to say, he didn't survive much longer after this pic was taken.

Ok, that is my biggest fear (other than something happening to my kids, hubby, or family) being played out! Everyone has a fear of "something," but I promise that my fear of snakes has in the last couple of years turned into a full blown phobia!! Yikes!!!! BE CAREFUL!!!

Mike...I definitely keep a better look at where I step now.

Lesley...snakes don't really bother me as much as bees and wasps and other flying stinging critters. Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment.

Kayne...maybe the jackals =)
