143/365 So strange, and kind of fascinating.

L ran out the door this morning as we were ready to leave and promptly found the body of a snake. He did the right thing even though it didn't have a head, he stopped, backed up, and came and got us. It was the oddest thing, and I don't get why it was in our yard since it didn't appear to be done by an animal. I'll never have the answer. Poor snake.

Edited to add: My sister commented on Flickr and said she thinks it's the tail of a legless lizard (Eastern Glass Lizard??) and not from a snake at all. Apparently they lose their tail when attacked to escape predators. Very cool!
