The Faith lives: enjoy Catholic culture...


On a lovely country road in the middle of nowhere, Liguria.

And in the olive groves above yours truly almost got killed by a green snake and that's no joke.

What exactly is a "green snake"? I assume it is venomous.

I couldn't see it or hear it, but as I looked down while quietly walking I saw by chance a giant green snake that was directly below me flying through the grass...and so I jumped back.

What's the difference between the two-tuft fascia and the single-tuft, as in this picture? Thanks

The only "green" snake that is found in Italy is the Dice Snake (Natrix tessellata) which is non-venomous. A word to the wise though: I was surprised to read that there are numerous venomous vipers in Italy but I could not find a "green" variety.

This is a two-tuft fascia. Single-tuft does not exist.

Eeeww! Snakes!

Do I see buckled shoes in this photo or is it just wishful thinking?

JPSonnen said...

Yep, in a perfect world...tasseled sash and buckled shoes!

So every time I see what appears to be a single-tufted fascia, it's actually got two but I can't see both? Hmm.

Goodness me, there are two and not one, it's plain to see, man. Click on the pic to make it bigger if you need to.
