last week i found a small brown snake wondering in the road while walking in a friends neighborhood...
i picked it up(i have a bad habit). My first assumption was that this was a brown snake, but further investigation said i was wrong.

I usually do not keep wild snakes(with the exception of a Texas Rat), but i have held on to wild snakes including Checkered Garter, Speckled Racer(would not eat), and numerous Texas Ratsnakes. I have an knack for native Texas snakes...
This little beast is awesome! He does this thing where he straightens his tail out and points it in the air. He is soo fast! Well i left him at my buddy's house for a few days and when i got him back i figured he needed to eat. I read online that they eat lizards, toads, and insects. I tossed in some grasshopers and one cricket. These INSECTS went untouched for three days so i let them go. Now tonite i went gecko hunting and came out successful! Two very small gecko no longer than an inch.

Wish me luck guys! If it does not eat by thursday I'm turning him loose. By the way i have no clue if it is a western or eastern, i will attempt to post picture.
