Mulch pile surprise

Look who I found in the mulch pile this morning! I'm not sure about the species. After a short photo session, I let it go in the compost pile.

UPDATE – From Clint "The Snake Man" Pustejovsky: "This little critter is a nonvenomous rough earth snake. They eat termite larva and slugs for most of their diet." Thanks, Clint!

Aw, heck. czardastx (http://www.blogger.com/profile/15098240076022766789) commented and I accidently rejected the post. So here it is:

"This is a strange comment for my first time to comment on your blog.

I work as a CSI. One time we had a call at a cemetery. Short story, we had to dig in a section of a large plot because of the family had found a blanket in the ground in the plot. The family was having a private ceremony to bury an urn of a relatives ashes. So, we dig in this plot and about 2 feet down a snake very similar to this one came slithering out of the ground. It startled me and my partner, and we were both amazed that a snake that small would be in the ground like that."
