Northern brown snake

Storeria dekayi dekayi


Nocturnal species, very secretive. Nonvenomous. They grow between 8-13 inches.


Found in my friend's driveway in a semi-wooded residential area. Found throughout Maryland, though I've never seen one before.


Escaped a bluejay's capture by hiding under a trash can. I got to snap a photo before the bird could return.

Have a look at the Maryland Parks mission you may be able to add some spotting to it. Safe travels.
