MOST RECENT

Recently hatched little Southern Crowned 👑 snake. There are hundreds of them in my immediate neighborhood right now. I've found them in several neighbor's yards. Previously I misidentified it as a ringneck.
They're harmless to people and ecologically important. They eat slugs, earthworms and bugs. They are protected in Georgia.

A dull sandy brown on top, a bright red Orange underbelly.Perhaps this coloration has evolved to frighten predators that manage to find these tiny snakes are on the surface, out of their sandy lairs

So happy I flipped this little guy on the last day of my Socal trip. The tiny, mildly venomous Tantilla planiceps, commonly know as the Western Blackheaded snake, so cool! #venomous #rearfanged #colubrid #tantilla #fieldherping #snakegoals #herpetology #snakesofinstagram #californiaherps #nativeherps #nature #nafha #biology #explore #hiking #socal #notaringneck.
