I agree--that snake is very pretty. I'd almost be tempted to "domesticate" it! (Just kiddding, of course...) I have never seen a Garter like that. Of course, Texas is home to all sorts of critters that a) I've never seen before or b) are 10x bigger than anywhere else. (No joke--I saw a "common house spider" the other day that could have taken a small farm animal in a fight!)

See we found one very similar, and thought it was a hog-nosed snake or blow-snake. It did flatten it's head out and puff up a bit, which is what the hog-nose snake will do. So maybe ours was still one of those, but it did have the patterns like the checkered. Interesting. We didn't kill ours, just moved him over our fence back in the greenbelt.

I don't live in Texas but I found a rattlesnake last Friday right by my front door here in California. I wish I had a camera to have taken a picture of it, it was fairly big. I kept my distance and waited for it to get out of the way before I proceeded to enter my house.

It eventually moved and went behind a bush, but once it went behind there it started rattling. In other words it was telling me I'm leaving now, but don't you dare try and find me.

It's been a while so I thought I'd see if anyone had any updated pictures, or perhaps some of you that didn't post photos in this thread last year have some nice photos of your yards.

We saw some great San Antonio yard pictures on here!

Not until winter for me - I have huge plans, but it's still too warm out and I'm preoccupied with other projects at the time.
