I had seen these on a few occasions over the years in South Florida but I had never managed to detain one long enough to get a picture; they are extremely squirmy and excellent at escaping, despite their tiny size. Once my wife and I found five or six of them crawling around inside my mother in law's home. We chose not to tell her that her house was infested with snakes.
