Notes

This ringneck was found next to a sidewalk surrounded by city, except on one side. And that side consisted of a man made north slope with grass, trees and other vegetation.

I was hoping for a lizard, did not expect to find any snakes along this road as I was walking to my truck.

You can see my hammer in the picture in the bottom right hand corner of the second habitat picture, that is the cardboard I found it under.
