I was at work Thursday, and beside the building I saw a snake that I have never seen before. Overall it looked like a garder snake. It was about 2 ft long, and a little bigger around than a quarter. It was black with gold stripes down each side. It's belly was metallic gold. What made this snake strange was that it had tiny white specks int the middle of it's body abouve the stripes.
Of course I tried to catch it, but it slipped away. The next day I saw the same snake in the same place. I cornered it between the building and a chain link fence. I was so close that I even touched it. I tried to get it to come from under the fence. It poked it's head out and then it struck at me twice, but it didn't open it's mouth. Again it found a way to slip away.
I really want to catch this snake so I can get some pics of it. Does anybody have any idea what kind of snake it is? Does anybody know of any traps that I can set to catch it?
