Uh-oh! Spaghettios



Found this guy in my back yard.

Nerodia species vary greatly, but all are relatively heavy-bodied snakes, sometimes growing to 4 feet or larger. They have flattened heads, with small eyes that have round pupils, and keeled scales. Species like N. fasciata display distinct banding, where other species, like N. erythrogaster have blotching, and N. rhombifer have diamond-shaped patterning. Most species are brown or olive green, or some combination therein with markings being brown, or black. Yellow or cream-colored accenting is common.

I did, my dog found him under a bush in my back yard so I decided to take a picture.

Nice, I wasn't sure.

If you get a chance, could you loan me the 80gp for mount? I should be 40 by Sunday at some point. I'll pay it back.

(also, wtb runs through all the SMs, will pay in metal)
