Wee Snake by GraveyardCat Wee Snake by GraveyardCat
Northern Red-Bellied Snake, found in one of my flowerbeds. Isn't it cute?

...and since people feel the need to point it out: yes, that is lint on my hand. I was wearing black gardening gloves, but took them off when I picked up the snake. Now you know the story of the mysterious black fuzz! :P

ALSO: yes, this is an adult snake. The babies are so little that they look like small wires. They do get a bit bigger than this, about 16 inches maximum (most of the ones I see are only 8 or 9 inches long). They are not venomous; they feed on slugs, small insects, and the like.
This particular snake was found in West Virginia, USA. It is a wild snake; I released it again after taking its picture.

Stock photo policy: If you use this image you must credit me, preferably including a link back to the original photo. Also, I would be delighted if you gave me a link to your finished work; I'd love to see it! My stock should be used for fun, not for profit. Thank you.

Reminds me of the ringneck snakes in Florida - they're darker, with a redder ring, and typically smaller. Both oddly adorable for snakes!:aww:

Nope! I like snakes too! ^_^

I found out that humans have a natural disposition to fear snakes and spiders even though most haven't been near one in their life.

I guess we've overcome our humanity. :-)
