Description

Two found in the garden bed. One was an adult and got away under the brush pile (I always find at least one here every year). I also found a baby that I picked up gently with garden gloves. It didn't even attempt to bite. But it did open its mouth and flick its tongue. The coloring was beautiful and its eyes were burnt orange/red. I don't know if adults maintain that same coloring - I'm never brave enough to pick one up!
