Ah, the sun’s peeking out! Time to come from out of the trees and bushes, and get my tan on!
Sun, such wonderful sun. Feels so good on my scales. I’ve been freezing all day, what with the clouds, wind and trees and stuph… Maybe I can get a little shut eye while I warm up.
I wish those humans would keep it down. At least they aren’t on my trail. They should have read the warnings when they came into the preserve (what!? They only warn about Mountain Lions!? I’m outraged! Don’t they know who I am?)
Back to sleep… feels so good… Hey! HEY! Watch out now! Didn’t you see me? You almost stepped right on me, and that would not have been pretty, for you. Do you see the rattles? Do you?? I’m not even gonna shake ’em. Just look.. yeah, that’s right. I got ’em, and I’m not afraid to use ’em.
Look at him, pulling out his camera. I’m not even gonna pose. I’ll just sit here like I was, pretending he ran away. Go ahead… take your pics. Tell everyone about me. I know I’m the highlight of your little walk.
Ah, sun, beautiful sun… I wonder who else’s day I can make…
