Maddy,( my sister ) spotted this snake in our front yard. My Dad came out to get it away from the house. It was quite aggressive. None of my family are quite sure what type it was. He was actually really aggressive. I hope this might give you some information.


I live in Greenville, Texas. I suppose that he lived in a small underground burrow, that I found right beside the tree I took a picture of him on.


Aggressive, small, and in the city.
