I found this snake against the house a day after the excavation work was completed. I was raking stones and levelling the dirt from the excavation work when I saw this snake. It's a garter snake or sometimes called a garden snake. They are generally small in size but this one was quite long and large compared to some of the other garter snakes I've seen on my property over the years. This dude was quite agressive. It kept striking at me and often had it's mouth open.
I scopped it up with a shovel, and let it go further away in some bushes.
