YAY! today i saw two more snakes when i went to put hay out for JuJu the donkey. Just when i was feeling sad about not seeing enough snakes, now three in 24 hours! I found this one slithering around the barn (the other one was too fast for me to take pictures of. Neither was as cute as the Ring Necked Snake, which totally has a smile.) :))
This snake was scared of me, wasn't too aggressive... but i could tell it was very willing to get aggressive if need be. I have seen copperheads who are much more shy then this little guy.
Various shades of brown, with a tan belly... and a pattern that really looks like we could play checkers on it. And those orange eyes!
Does anyone know the scientific name for this snake?
