Greetings to all folks near and far.
I have been out walking a lot more lately with this lovely spring weather we are having. One reason I like to walk out around the little mountain behind me is to see if I can spot that seven foot Bull snake so many of my neighbors have seen. I so want to get a picture of it and post it in my forum for all of you to see.
Did you know that a Bull snake is often mistaken for a Rattlesnake? They even make a clicking noise in their mouth that sounds like a rattler. They do that if they feel threatened. They may bite if aggravated enough, but they are not venomous, thank goodness. People around here just respect the old Bull snake enough to leave him alone and give him space.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
Kappa Legends Of Japan
Yokai can be malevolent, mischievous, and some may bring good fortune to those who see them. Some, like the kappa, are flesh-eating water monsters who kidnap children, and drown people or animals.
Please join me in my forum to chat about this or any of my articles. I look forward to hearing from you and getting acquainted.
Till next time may all your roads lead safely home and may you walk in peace and harmony.
