in the skin

As promised in my "career possibility" post, here is a shot of our newest reptilian addition to the family. I have been watching for him in vain for some time now, but tonight I guess he decided he wanted to show off for company . . . so as we headed out for our post-dinner stroll, we found him slithering along on his own evening jaunt.

Oh wow! What kind of snake is it?

Well it's actually a simple garter snake. But it took us a while to pinpoint it, as there is an oddly pretty checkerboard design to its scales. I bet you have some more exotic ones there where you are--or do you have them there?
