A visit from the USDA

One of the perks of living on Guam is that you get a visit from Cannon, the USDA dog, AKA...snake finder! His handler, Mark was very informative and told us stories about the snakes he found on base. One snake he found was in the lining at the bottom of the couch! There was a hole in the lining that the snake took full advantage of to make itself a home. Can you imagine sitting down on your couch after a long day and not knowing that there is a snake right beneath you?! All military moves are subject to an inspection before the items are shipped off island. Just goes to show how big the brown tree snake problem really is.

Mark and Cannon the snakefinder!
