Snake skin hanging: Ponoka residents had an interesting Sunday afternoon after finding what appears to be a large snake skin hanging from a tree. If it was a snake skin, it looked to be about five feet tall and was hanging from a tree near the Scout Hall path along the river valley. The skin looked semi transparent and patterns all up its side. Here Jeff Ramage sizes up the snake skin. A close up of the snake skin is cropped alongside the other photo. It is not known how the skin arrived at the tree. Photos by Andrea Ramage
