So, here's a blue-bellied lizard. Yes, its in our house... why? because it thought the laundry room closet would be a nice place to play. (This is my dear husband's hand holding the lizard - I don't think I will ever get to that level.)
Here's a snake. Yep, its pretty big. In this picture its in a black rubbermaid tub. Wanna know where my dear husband found this snake - yep - in our garage. Yeah, that's right, the garage that is ATTACHED to our house! ... I'm so glad he caught it.
Here's my dear husband - in our garage (pardon the mess) - he's got his snake boots on because he was catching the above-pictured snake and was not quite sure if it was a rattlesnake or a gopher snake or what, so he wanted to be safe. In this picture he is keeping an eye on the snake in the tub, while surfing the internet to find out what kind of snake it is. - He determined it was a gopher snake and released it farther down on our property.
