Three identical snakes seen when I turned over a rock. A larger snake scurried off before I got a look at it.
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!
Dekay's Brown Snake observed at Snake Road at Larue Pine Hills in Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois
An adult Brown Snake, Storeria dekayi, was observed at the Welder Wildlife Foundation, Texas.
I estimate it was probably about 30 cm (1 ft) long.
Thanks you all who helped identify this harmless snake!
