Thought my luck would run out by catching the garter snake. I guess not because when I flipped over a huge rock, I found this beauty. This was the first one that I have found in the wild that was aggressive. It let me hold it but only in certain ways no grabbing by the middle of the body but I could let hold it at the tail. This is the second one I have found that acted like a gopher snake trying to mimic a rattlesnake.
Thought I would try my luck and do some b-day herping. Found a whole bunch of these everywhere. This was the only one I was able to catch.
So I thought my luck ran out with the 2 snakes but I guess not since I found one of these! Very cool!
