Corralitas Drive: Dark Side Of Corralitas Attracts Reptiles

Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 9, 2013.  Do you see the last 5 inches of a pencil thin baby Gopher Snake speeding into the dry brush?  (Clicking on photo won't make it much better)

This evening, while walking the dog, we spotted a tiny little gopher snake sitting on the curb.  When my dog approached it sped off into the grass just as I got one quick shot with my phone.  I'd never seen such a tiny foot-long snake. 

This is the same section of the hill where another neighbor found a Ring-Necked Snake.
