The young otter looked up from the packs, which she was checking for damage. "Hahahahaha! Wonderfully brave, my grannie's apron! You great fluffy-tailed buffer,don't you know the difference twixt an adder an' a grass snake? Huh, Mister Death, eh!"

Armel stammered, "B…but I didn't know , I thought it was poison!"

Brooky scoffed. "Just look at its back, the thing hasn't got a diamond pattern. Adders have diamond patterns along their backs.Grass snakes only have markings on their sides. Look."

She wiped the uncocious reptile's back off with her cloak hem. There, beneath the layer of ditch mud and rotten leaves , was the black V-marked head and zigzag marks of an adder.

Brooky thought this was hilarious. " Oh hahahahoohoo! Silly me, it was an adder after all."_
