Latin/Translate a quote by Virgil
I will donate generously if you can translate this quote to Latin:
"There is a snake lurking in the grass."
This is not homework, it is not for a tattoo, and it will not be used to sell anything.
“Latet anguis in herba“ is the original Latin quote that we read in Virgil’s Bucolics, Eclogue III,line 93, where a shepherd called Damoetas says exactly:
”O pueri, fugite hinc, latet anguis in herba“ [literally meaning: “Flee from this place, boys, a snake is lurking in the grass”].
Hence the English translation “There is a snake lurking in the grass”.
