More Hoboken Wildlife
And no, not a typical Friday night!
One incident was captured by local artist Frank Hanavan, who witnessed a mini-crowd gathering around this tiny garter snake on Washington St. last week. He said it had come from the carpet store, and was trying to get back into any nearby door. They were poking it with one of those shelf-grabbing sticks. This, in addition to another dead one he saw near the viaduct were the only two snakes he’d seen in 25 years in Hoboken! He didn’t hang around to find out what happened. If our flooding problems continue, maybe we’ll see the Loch Ness monster next?
Next, I saw this brazen opossum milling around the trash cans near Court Street. It had no fear as I could have walked right up to it. I guess the rubbish is that good there! Unlike that girl that was crazy afraid the last time she saw one in her backyard, I think I could have taken this bastard!
What was the last (non-human) specimen you saw?
