Western Black-headed Snake

July 28, 2019

We found another snake species in the garden, this super cool Western Black-headed Snake.  Endemic to California and the Baja California Peninsula, this small snake (compare its size to the fallen oak leaves) lives in moist areas in arid environments and spends most of its life underground. We feel fortunate to have crossed paths with it.
