The Good Kind

May 9, 2013

Came across another snake while mowing. It appears to be an Eastern Gartersnake, Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis. Definitely one of the good kind. Notice the round pupils. With the exception of the Coral Snake, all other venomous snakes in the South are pit vipers (Copperhead, Cottonmouth and Rattlesnake) that have vertical slit pupils, like a cat.

These snakes eat a lot of insects. I let him go about his way.
