Quietly walking through a wood in Springlfield, Missouri, I heard a rustling from the leaves. Recognising the sound, from a Ray Mears-esque adventure in the Peruvian jungle, I immediately recognised the noise to be a snake. Alerting the girls to step back, I zoned in on the animal which wanted to cross the path we were walking down. Jessi - our resident snake expert - calmed all our fears when she pointed out it had a square rather than triangualar head which meant it was probably not poisenous. However we let the snake cross before continuing.
