Notes

Of all the times not to have a camera! I had to use cell phone pics on this rarely seen snake in a county where they are only historically listed. Individual was found beneath a rock just off of dirt road. Recent bulldozer activity had exposed several small rocks in sandy soil and probably kicked this individual up as well. 6 inch adul. Species of concern in Pa. Apologies for the cell phone pics.
