A coachwhip snake was uncovered when a tarp was pulled back from a dirt pile we use for potting soil at Sheldon Lake State Park.
We expected it to whip away, but it stayed for a photo op. It was about four feet long.
A ranger said the milky-looking eyes indicted the snake was getting ready to shed its skin.
|Rather than flee the snake moved toward us. Maybe it thought I had a mouse in my pocket.|
|Finally the snake had enough and headed toward the grass.|
