Found moving through leaf litter
These juvenile Texas Brown Snakes were observed in a dried creek bed.
Found slithering through the grass, after dusk, along the Guadalupe River
Was found beneath debris along dirt road.
This snake was hiding under a bin in my craft/spare room inside the house, but next to an external wall. We don't have many bugs but I have seen millipedes in there on occasion.
It's in a 33.9 oz coffee container in the photo. I was able to to easily capture it and take it outside where I released it in my wildscape flowerbed. The snake was not aggressive.
I normally see only rat snakes in my yard but did have one sighting earlier this year of a yellow-bellied racer. I've had a rough earth snake in the house (under the kitchen sink) once before.
