This is a small snake of approximately 12" in length. It is small in girth; it is probably a young snake.


Seen in dead leaves at the edge of an undeveloped area in the backyard.


It was certainly not happy with my presence and communicated that with forceful tongue flickings and body contortions. Is it possibly a Dekay's Brownsnake?
