    Found an interesting little reptile

    Odd,

    These little guys are supposed to be nocturnal and very shy. This is the second time we've seen him in a week. Sharon actually saw him, and I was able to grab the camera and get a picture of him.

    Small cute little guy. He was a little feisty and clearly did not like having his picture being taken...

    I'm pretty sure this is him... Sonora semiannulata semiannulata - Variable Groundsnake

    My opinion on 'cute reptiles' has changed drastically since I moved to Nevada. There was a time when I wouldn't have been able to get close enough to that little fellow to take his picture

    Compared to the rattlers, I find him cute due to his small size and the fact that he is harmless...

    I still don't find rattlers cute though, and find that our ability to co-exist peacefully to be completely non-existent!

    I'm not much of a snake fan, but that one's cool-looking. I think it'd be kind of fun to see something like that in the yard.

    I've seen a couple of alligator lizards in the shop this year (and tons in the yard and woodpile), but I've not seen a snake around here for several years.

    Reminds me of our Coral and King Snakes but of course no yellow stripe. I agree he is a good looking snake.

    I was bush hogging my pasture yesterday and found a green snake, first one I have seen in years. I caught him and transplanted him to a safe place. Unfortunately I found a beautiful corn snake that the bush hog got.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Actually, I wouldn't have stuck around long enough to get a good ID. It looks too similar to a coral snake for my liking. If in snake country I carry a pistol with the first two rounds of bird shot. If I even think it might be venomous, it's dead.

    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
