Snake Visits Refugium

Haven't been on the forum for a while, but I had to share this. I was shocked to find this 2-foot long Garter snake in my refugium. I have a cat that tends to bring snakes and other critters into the house from outside, relatively unharmed. My theory is that she brought this guy into the house, where he escaped. My refugium is on the floor and my guess is that's where he decided he'd be safe from my cat.

my brother had one named ralph one time while we were growing up. every time it got loose the cat would find it and bring it back in her mouth. hopefully it did not bring any external parasites into your refugium.

I'm sorry but if I found that in my house it wouldn't end good for the snake. I'm not a big fan of snakes especially if they invade my space. Harmless or not they creep me out.
