On rare occasion, particularly if the wind has been calm for several days, as it has recently, one will encounter the sloughed-off skin of the Greater Prairie Sandsnake. I am told that the early inhabitants of these plains often used the moltings as a sort of giant sausage-casing, stuffing tons of meat, and even whole animals into them, seasoning the mixture with sage-brush, roots and all. Quite a gustatory delight, to be sure!
