Allan, one of our favorite guys at Worden's Market in Missoula, was fishing this week on Monture Creek near the Blackfoot River when he spotted this snake having a (big) bite to eat and snapped the photo. Allan says when he arrived a the scene, the snake must have just caught the sculpin and the fish was still alive (but looking very sad). The snake swallowed the fish a "short while later."

  1. There’s something dark about this.

    Was it the beer or the heat getting to you, Courtney?

  2. It’s not all that unusual for garter snakes to eat fish πŸ™‚

  3. There is a pond near Black eagle dam on the rivers edge trail in Great Falls where i have been watching garter snakes eat the gold fish. Saw the first one about a month ago. Wish i had had a camera.

  4. That sculpin DOES look sad! πŸ™‚

  5. The fish was probably sad because it knew it would taste better with a little salt, pepper and lemon juice!

  6. fish’s facial expression says it all–better than any emoticon.
