Are you afraid of snakes? This is a good guy in the snake world.

Ken and Martha Fischer wrote, “Here is a California Red-sided Gartersnake, a real handsome fellow! We encountered him, or her, while hiking near the Hot Spot on The Sea Ranch.”

A nonvenomous snake of the coast, these Gartersnakes are usually found near water, particularly the sag ponds of the San Andreas fault.

Thanks to Ken for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
