Found in a garage in Goochland. The guy who found it thinks it may be a Black Necked Garter Snake, but it would be out of place. He is guessing an Eastern Garter.

Hate to see any snake caught in a glue trap.
The eastern gartersnake is the only gartersnake native to Virginia (and it is an eastern gartersnake).

I've got an email into the person to see if they got it off the glue trap. Yes, I saw that tail too and think it may be a lizard.

Beautiful snake. It baffles me that glue traps are not illegal. They do more harm than good. Hope they can get the poor guy off the trap.
