Nov 11, 2019: Brown Snake

A non-venomous snake measuring 13 to 18 inches long, Brown Snakes can be found in all of Iowa except for the northwestern third.  The subspecies found in our area is the Texas Brown Snake (Storeria dekayi texana).  This individual was found on the Harrison Rd spur, near the junction with the lakes trail (SW corner of the Park). (Wolf. Oesterreich, 11/6/19)
