Awwwwwwww! What a cutie.I know you're not necessarily interested in identifying the animals you find, but it looks like a redbelly snake to me - you're lucky, I've never actually seen a live one, only a couple smashed dead ones on driveways. :(
Rebecca,I know! So cute.Even though I don't always rush to ID animals I see, I welcome you sharing your knowledge with us! Thank you!
