Milk Snake – 5/2/20

Observer: Marcia Tranavitch

Observation Date:  5/2/20

Observation Time: noon

Observation Location: against the retaining wall in my garden at 24 Pine St.

Common Name: Milk Snake

Scientific Name: Lampropeltis triangulum

Comments: I encountered him/her among the leaves I was cleaning out at the edge of the woods on my property.

I estimate this milk snake was at least 3 feet in length. To appreciate its length, note the additional section of the snake that is visible in the upper right corner of two of these three photos.
