Description

So my friend’s wife works at SF animal control and had a snake brought into the office. It was found in the hallway of a hotel by Mission and 4th near the Metreon. My friend thought it was a native sharp-tailed but the pics look more like an earthsnake from the eastern US...unfortunately my friend took it out of the jar to get better pics for me, pulled a butterfingers and accidentally dropped and released it in Telegraph Canyon up Claremont Ave in Oakland...never trust a birder lol! So now we have a possibly introduced snake species roaming the East Bay hills. Unless it’s a sharp tailed/forest sharp-tailed, but I suspect it must’ve traveled here in someone’s luggage and escaped in the hotel. And this is how species get introduced, good job humans.

Crappy photo quality, but we saw a skunk foraging in thick grass and then running across the trail after!
