This morning, two days later, I got into the bathroom and found a hitchhiker slithering on the carpet floor between the sink and tub area. It was a common grey garden snake that was about 7 inches in length! At first, I thought it was an earthworm that had come out of the dirt, but then it moved and raised it head up looking at me looking at it!
EGADS! It's not an earthworm! How do I catch the thing? LOL Well, I finally caught it after it tried to get away a few times, and I put it in a jar to get a better look at it. Yep ... its a baby grey garden snake.
I ended up taking it to my daughters house because she home schools and the oldest granddaughter wanted to document all the details for her own curiosity sake. She was more excited about documenting it than I was when I found it crawling on my bathroom floor.
Part of me wonders if it really found its way out of that mini-rose pot, or if it got in some other way!?
