I didn’t have to venture out and about for this weirdness…it came to me! We found this handsome snake in our kitchen this afternoon. (Note to self: Always investigate when the dogs seem interested in looking under the furniture. I think this guy spent the night in our house!) I scooped him into a bucket, put a lid on it, and dug out an old guidebook, Amphibians and Reptiles in Colorado. Sure enough, it’s a baby bullsnake. I set him free in a nice pile of rocks in our yard, and he posed for a few photos before slithering off. Adios!
