Thanks Stephanie! I was impressed with its color, although in reality it seemed a little more orange. I find brown snakes more than garter snakes now days.

Thanks Ashely:) I know what you mean about the black mamba look. Glad I don't have those in Illinois, lol!

I liked the one you had as the first position originally better :) For some reason he reminds me of a little black mamba in that photo haha
