Description

Raking up dead leaves on a rock garden this little guy was hiding beneath the leaf litter. This small snake was about10 to 12" long with a narrow head, small eyes, a pinkish colored belly and pearlescent scales. It sat motionless until I tried to move it to get a better pic of it's head at which time it quickly made it's way into a small opening and by the time I could get the camera on it all that was left to shoot was the tip of it's tail.

Description

This snake wandered up to the little frog pond near the house while I was working on re-landscaping it. It seemed to not be concerned with my presence and was not even bothered by the appearance of my bouncy vociferous 8 year old. It had recently shed and the old skin still covered the head and the tip of the tail. Eventually it chased a medium/small bullfrog from under the lip of the fake pond and proceeded to soak it's head in the water for a considerable amount of time...presumably in an attempt to loosen the remaining dead skin.

Description

Two rat snakes entwined in a bushy stump. One is about 4'+ long the other is 6'...possibly longer. They were first seen separately in different parts of the yard...then one was up the tree and the other was below but still on the ground. We watched the second larger snake climb up and "snuggle" with the other. The smaller snake had a place about the size of a half-dollar that looked like a spot that didn't shed or perhaps a scar.
