This is not in connection with the previous thread about pets we travel with.

I'm trying to find a realistic looking plastic snake - oh say 4 feet long.

A friend had one on his boat, curled up on the deck in plain view. He never, in all the years we were moored side by side, he never had a sea gull or other birds land on or poop on his deck.

Now I need to find such a critter to protect my spot.

Any ideas?

I don't know about 4 ft long, but many toy stores have very realisting looking rubber snake toys. I'd also check the gift shop at a museum or a Rain Forest Cafe. (Are any of them open any more?)

Try a hardware store. Like Ace. I've seen plastic snakes and also initation owls.

Rubber snake`s a good idea. I used to love them as a kid and I never thought they`d come in handy later. Pity, I swapped all mine.

But what about big birds that eat snakes? Would we be having to duck down avoiding the hungry predators of the skies? That might mean having to make a scarecrow as well.

I long for a holiday and it won`t be long now.

Anchored in the harbor we saw all the sea birds, and an occasional Osprey, but none took a swipe at the snake - it was just too big and too real. Scared visitors too. Even our Yorky gave it a wide berth.

Have not found one yet (I'd have kept the original on the boat but the buyer wanted it so bad it sounded to me like a deal-clincher and I let him include it in the deal).
