Lost it's tail and is beginning to grow back. Located on a small patch of dirt next to an apartment complex in about 85 degree weather. Did not move away or try to flee as I grabbed it. Last photo is for relative size comparison.
Strangest place I've ever seen a snake - in the rafter above Restroom in park. Perhaps going for bats at light who were going for moths?
This individual also landed a bite on me during capture (dang wreckless youth!), and I thought I'd include a photo of the bite. I recall it feeling like a wasp-sting about 15 minutes after the bite, and lasted the remainder of the evening, but everything was fine the following morning. I don't recall there being any swelling, discoloration, etc.
About 3/4 m arboreal in a pepper (Capsicum) plant that is regularly watered.
