Ribbonsnake – March 10, 2013

The pictures above are of a young Eastern Ribbonsnake. (Thamnophis sauritus sauritus)

It was a pleasant surprise to see a Ribbon out so early in the season. The snake’s color appears muted and brown probably from hibernating underground for most of the winter. Either that or he was out playing in the mud and desperately needs a bath.

For Photos: Many thanks again to the Chesapeake Butterfly Queen.
For Spotting the Snake: That credit would go to Zach, aka the Snake Whisperer, one of the finest young snake hunters in Southeastern Virginia. Zach also got some photos of the snake. If I knew where he posted them, I would include a link.
