Question for Zoo, or anyone else.
The boys saw a snake on their way home from school so we went back to look at him and take pictures for a project Xavier is working on.
The boys told me it was a "garden snake", but I don't know anything about snakes, so I had no idea what it was. We looked up snakes indigenous to Texas but didn't see anything that looked like our snake. After more searching, we *think* he is an Opheodrys aestivalis (not sure about common name).
Here are the pics of Mr. Snake:
He has a tiny head, is skinny, kind of long, black eyes, and he has a yellow tummy. Any ideas?
