I almost stepped on this small snake by accident, the markings on its back were consistent with the Northern subspecies rather than the "diamond pattern" of the midland species which is also in the area.
Observed a tiny brown snake (Northern Brown Snake?).
Warming up in the sun on a mild March day. A local freshwater wetland dweller.
A Northern Brown Snake at Sachuest Point NWR.
Found dead and half buried in recently disturbed soil (part of wetland/stream restoration work). It was alongside the remains of a Northern Redbelly Snake. Perhaps they were together in a hibernacula that was dug up? I believe both species are know to utilize ant mounds together.
Saw this on a side road near my house. There's a field along the road and have seen snakes on the road various times.
This snake looked to be just over a foot long. It was grey with a lighter spine and black dots running along the spine. He was crossing a concrete path when I saw him.
I was walking the Humber trails this morning and saw this garden snake! It was brown with little markings on it. It was small but very quick! I was able to snap a picture of it before it went into the grass!
