Snake's tails 1

Following Henry's lead at his Webiocosm (here and here), I am putting up some snake photos from my collection.

This is an adult worm snake (Carphophis amoenus), a nonpoisonous species. We found this specimen last year in the woods across from Plummers Island, along the Potomac River in Maryland. I have been told that this was the first record of this species for that area. After taking its pictures we released it back to its home.

Looks kind of like a worm, eats worms, very nice!
