Baby Coachwhip Snake. Morningside Nature Center, Gainesville, Florida. 2013.
Yesterday was a good snake day (yes, there are such days!). I went on a short hike and saw 2 baby snakes. The first was a baby Black Racer. When I saw this one, at first I thought it was also a black racer. But then I saw that the colors were very different, and the body was very long. It turned out to be a baby Coachwhip Snake--a first for me!
