Outdoor Classroom: Snakeskin Discovery

While tending the garden, we found this little creature...
or at least what was left of it.

The little snake must have died a while ago. All that was left was the skin. The little eyes were still intact, though dehydrated. Very cool!

Just a small garden snake, the diameter of a pencil. They like to hide in the back of my garden beds. With super tiny mouths, humans need not worry about bites. Their diet is primarily small creatures {like earthworms and snails} they are a welcome part of our ecosystem :)
