It's hard to believe but this little noodle is a full grown Dekay's brown snake Storeria dekayi. These snakes are some of the most numerous in New England, but because of their size, color, and habits, are rarely seen. People who want to see one should find a big log at the edge of the woods or an old piece of plywood in a vacant lot. Brown snakes are likely to be underneath, hunting for slugs, earthworms, spiders, and other small soft prey.

i've spent years flipping stuff over. my propery is rife with amphiblians and such, but not these guys. perhaps just not NH? corn/rat snakes (not sure) yes, garters (even tan/brown garters), so called black/whip, water, and others. these are cute.
