Smooth Earth Snake

Virginia valeriae


We found this skin when we were moving a raised vegetable bed. Luckily, we spotted the snake a few minutes later. Unluckily, we weren't able to get a picture of the snake itself. It was about 10 inches long, with stormy gray, smooth scales.


It lived in the landscape timbers of the bed here in our long leaf pine and wire-grass forest. I really hope it found a nice new home.
