After seeing Record 235146, this little yellow twig came onto the road. Photographed on the trunk of my car.

Cool! I have only seen one of these before, in Franklin County in 2013. They're pretty awesome snakes!

It was the most uncooperative little bugger. Some snakes you can cup with your hand, and they'll settle down. But this guy was squirming like a worm.
