Was just passing through the Laguna City park for lunch today when I was greeted by a 4ft brown snake that quickly moved from one flower bed, accross the sidewalk I was on, and then up another flower bed out of site.
*Very slender with almost a ‘racing’ form of locomotion.
* Mocha colored, head to toe
* Easily climbed a 2 foot flower bed box
* 2 inches in diameter
Any ideas of the type of species of this critter? I saw signs in this park back in October mentioning that skin sheddings had been spotted in the park and for passerbys to use caution, but never gave it much thought until today. Really surprised to see this in a busy park..
