Description

At 8:41 a.m., I lifted a mid-sized rock in a grassy meadow about 0.2 by 0.4 m and found my first snake (ever). Hypsiglena torquata under rock. It had vertical pupils and brown blotches around neck. The patterning on the back matched down the lateral line at times but mismatched at times also. When I picked it up, it was coiled underneath the rock, but in my hand, splayed out at first. As a moments passed, it became increasingly more coiled. In the few minutes that I head it, it didn’t move all that much, most likely due to the cold temperature, but began to move more as it warmed up in my hand. Batrachoceps attenuatus (3) were found also found nearby under rocks in a wetter area beneath a tree.
