A local and completely harmless snake, the Desert Night Snake. They eat small lizards, eggs and small snakes. They are mildly venomous but not dangerous to humans. (I’ve seen them struggle with small lizards) Remember folks the only dangerous snakes we have are rattlesnakes and even then they do not want to be near you.
