Thanks Cameron! Plus what's not to love about a little guy that is less than half as slender as my little finger!

Queensnakes are absolutely incredible creatures. They only eat freshly molted crayfish which makes them even cooler.

Great Spotting!!!

I agree with Sergio. "Super cute" doesn't even seem to be an adequate description. :-)

Thanks Sergio! I forgot to take any of this in my hand - you can't really tell just how tiny this little guy was from the photos.
