This evening a homeschool friend let us come and see a snake they found on their back patio. It was the smallest snake I had ever seen. Slightly bigger than a large earthworm. The boys were delighted that they could hold a real snake. It was fascinating the head was so small and the forked tongue was miniscule. I believe she said it was a rough ground snake. I took some pictures, unfortunately they did not come out as clear as I would have liked.
