My husband found this tiny baby Golden-crowned Snake, about 12cm long, in our backyard this afternoon. Golden-crowned Snakes are mildly venomous but are reluctant to bite. However, they will rear up in a bluff display of menace (as seen in shots 5 & 6). This one was very cute and I'm afraid we didn't find his threatening display scary at all!
