    While doing some landscaping by my front door, and had an unexpected house guest.

    Yikes!

    I expect to see big snakes when I come to LPSG, but not that kind!

    Not sure but it almost looks like a cross between a garter snake and a grass snake.

    I love snakes..... but they can startle me absolutely shitless when I'm not expecting to see them.

    (Hmm... the same can be true for cocks...)

    I thought it was a young grass snake by looking at your photo:wink: I would much rather see one of those, all I ever get are rat snakes and copperheads. I hate copperheads:frown1:

    Usually have at least one or two snakes resident at my place. Mostly carpet pythons living in the ceiling and sometimes a brown tree snake. I much prefer to have them as housemates than rats and mice. I hate rats... :eek: ...*screams like a girl*

    Just a couple nights ago I went to bed and heard a thump in the ceiling followed by a squeal. I quickly drifted off to sleep content, knowing that Mr Snakey had caught the evil rat that had been making a mess of my pantry :biggrin1:

    here's a photo I took recently of a brown tree snake (we call them dolly eyes)

    What a cutie! We had garter snakes by our dock for quite a while, until the construction...:(
