Description

I found this fellow right when I opened my breezeway door. He was just cruising along and minding his own business. He didn't show anger when I got close to him, and he was quite friendly. He was 13-16 inches long, just over a foot. He had layered colors: black, tan, and brown. He also had interesting square and circle shaped patterns. Later on, he had moved out in our driveway. I decided to get some gloves and pick him up. After that, I safely placed him underneath an oak tree.
