Eastern Worm Snake

Carphophis amoenus amoenus


Known commonly as an Eastern Worm Snake, this little guy looked like an earthworm, at first, until I looked closer. He was the size of an earthworm, but was darker brown in color. His head was as big around as his body.


He was on the side of a gravel road, near a Creek, and a hiking trail. This was near Wolf Creek, in Tennessee, between Hot Springs, NC and Del Rio, TN, in the Blue Ridge Mountains.


The picture of the quarter, beside a rock is for size comparison.
