This was a real treat for me. After spending several hours one night out looking for reptiles I finally gave up and started to head home. No more than five minutes later was this guy found laying in the middle of a mountain road soaking up the warmth from the asphalt road. I was able to pull over quick enough to get him off the road seconds before he would have become roadkill.
