Pine Woods Snake

Rhadinaea flavilata


Very small reddish brown snake. It had a white belly, red eyes, and the head was a bit darker brown than the body. It was a fast burrower, and we watched it push up the the decaying wood and dirt as it burrowed down into it

Almost impossible to get good head shots of burrowing snakes. Looking at the second reference, that isn't the type head I was expecting at all on a burrowing snakes. Nice catch Machi. One has to be quick with the camera to catch them at all.
