Young California Kingsnake

Here’s a very young california kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula californiae) I found out doing his thing one night.

After missing a bite, it curled into a defensive ball.

I moved it to the base of a tree, where, which to my surprise it climbed up into the lower branches and then just sat still for some photos.
