Storeria dekayi vict
A very small, spotted brown snake, usually less than 12 in. (305 mm) long. Back varies from light to dark brown, sometimes gray, with a faint, light band behind the head. Belly pale, usually with a dark spot at lateral edge of each ventral scale. Scales on back and sides strongly keeled; anal scale divided.
Pine rocklands and tropical hardwood hammocks, frequently taking refuge beneath rocks or other cover. Sometimes near surface water, though less aquatic than peninsular brown snakes.
Found this cute little one under a rock by the blue hole.
