Nature Day: Snake Viewing






We thought it was too cold for reptiles, but these two surprised us.

First a Skilton's Skink (without the breeding colors shown in some of the photos at the link... worth looking at for the fantastic ruby reds and bright blues!)

As for the snake, is it a Wandering Gartersnake or a California Glossy Snake? Visually, it seems to resemble the latter more, but the expected habitat/range better matches the former.
