The DeKay’s Brownsnake is tiny. I’m surprised I saw it. It was on one of the trails at Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

DeKay’s Brown Snake (Storeria dekayi) is a species of small, non-venomous snake found in North America. It is also commonly known as the DeKay’s Snake or the Northern Brown Snake. These snakes have brown or reddish-brown skin with dark spots or crossbands, and a light-colored belly. They feed mainly on earthworms, slugs, and snails, and are generally harmless to humans.
