Roger was down at the school after taking Bonnie and Sophie back after lunch, so I stopped and pulled out the snake. The kids waiting for the school gates to open were all very keen to have a look so I took it over to show them. It was about then that the snake started to move and look around. You should have heard the scream!
I didn't know if snakes in France are poisonous or not, so I asked one of the teachers, who told me that vipers are dangerous, but this particular snake - a couleuvre - is harmless.
