These two creatures can find a mutual language.
Well, it’s a bit weird.
The previous week, Sarah Alison was at home with her parents in Texas when she witnessed an interesting scenery. When she stopped in order to check on the family’s chickens, Alison detected that the surprise guest had seemingly snuck into the house under one of his feathered occupants.
It was a snake coiled under a chicken.
Alison was astonished but even more astonishing was that the chicken was far from stunned.
“The snake didn’t seem to bother her at all,” Allison said, accepting she doesn’t know how this uncommon fitting began. “Maybe the chicken came up and sat on him, or just he slipped under her and chose not to move.”
Whatever it was, it was certainly something to witness.
Surprisingly, this was not the snake’s premier arrival in the colony. It was just the premier time he was caught making affectionate interactions with one of the birds.
It turns out that the feral rat snake is known to Alison’s parents and plays an essential role in keeping the peace in the territory. He lives in a broken-down car next door to the cabin and occasionally goes out to feast on one of the freshly laid chicken eggs. In place of it, the snake repels potential carnivores as well as pests that might damage them.
Because of this, Alison’s father actually refers to the snake as his “fellow”.
“He never made an attempt to cause damage to the chickens or their chicks,” Alison said. “We applaud this because it is rodent power. I think as long as the snake doesn’t cause damage to the chickens, it should be tolerated.”
Following the instance of the chicken, Alison made up her mind to let the snake feel cozy and, after examining again after a while, found that the snake had slipped away on his own.
It still doesn’t explain why the snake chose to be under the chicken that evening, though it possibly appeared the ideal location for the cold-blooded being to be protected from the frost in the air.
“In my opinion, the snake chose this box because it was near the door,” Allison said. “But who knows? It would be pretty cozy to warm up.”
There was certainly something strange about the chicken and snake wrapper but there was something amazing about it as well. After all, if these two can find a mutual language, what can’t?
