Small Snake Relocated from the Garage

Small snake found in our garage.
This little guy was found huddling against the inside of the garage door last night. We tried to convince him to go out on his own, but he was having none of it.

I guess I don’t blame him, the nights have been getting rather cool lately and I’m sure the garage was much warmer than it was outside. But it’s not safe for him to stay in there, so we resorted to carefully picking him up and relocating him elsewhere.

This photo is of Angela gently carying him across the yard. A lot easier said than done as he was in constant motion the entire time.

Went out onto the back porch to water the plants tonight and found this guy hanging out in the pot of Wandering Jew.  He may not look it here, but he is not small.  His body, tip of his nose to his hind legs, is about as long as my hand, finger tips to wrist.  Even so, I didn’t see him until I started putting water into the pot.  I’m not sure he appreciated the bath.
