Wild Kingdom

Having a little rest on your coffee table, this tiny snake looks pretty calm and harmless….

…but when he shows up in a place you would never expect, he might give you a little fright!

I made this little snake with my newfound crochet skills – just single crocheted a tube starting from a spiral bottom, starting from the head with variegated camouflage yarn. It would have been a great idea to stuff him as I went along, but poking all the stuffing in there later worked out eventually. I also threaded some copper wire inside to give him some bendy-ness, although if I was going to give this away to a small child I would probably skip that part. He did have some shape forming abilities without the wire, just not as good.

The only problem I have left is that he needs a name, preferably one that starts with an S. Any ideas?

    How about Slither? I love this! I’m definitely going to make one for my 5 year old boy – as soon as it’s not so hot out!

    Ooh, I like Slither! My sister also suggested Ssssnakenstein. (She was very adamant about all the S’s!). I’m glad you liked it!
