I found this little beauty basking on a canal trail while biking. It was "playing dead" which I had never seen a Dekay's do this before.

Description

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.
