Night Snake<br />
Hypsiglena torquata<br />
<br />
These tiny snakes prowl about the desert in search of small lizards to eat. They are about the thickness of a pencil and perhaps a foot long. They are rear-fanged and mildly venomous, but like most snakes with that disclaimer, I haven't had any reaction to their bites. They are generally too small to break the skin anyway.
