    yeah I don't react well around snakes. So far, it has not ended well for anyone that I have ever met.

    Looks like it was a common garter snake.

    Why did you kill it?

    Garter Snake.

    I can't think of a more harmless snake. (I really can't)

    Next time, go on a slug hunting rampage. Those suckers are far more dangerous than garter snakes.

    I have cats and dogs for the mice and other critters.
    It was a shovel.
    Typically when I see a snake, its dead. Ill worry about ID'ing it after its dead.
    Works out better for me.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Garter snakes are great pets. I had one as a pet. Now that you made your own Gasden flag... Declare your independence!
