Flat-headed snake

Yesterday, Prima (our cat kid) found this small snake after I photographed the grisly murder scene that left one male Argiope aurantia dead and a female happily fed. This is a flat-headed snake (Tantilla gracilis). I snagged some photos with help from James, then released the little guy under the bushy lantanas.

I used to catch and play with these as a kid, pretending to be a jungle princess in the rainforest, lol! I’m sure they were relieved when I finally let them go on their merry way after a good hour of adventures.
