Brown Snake: These
little snakes are a little larger than the Red-Bellys.
Adults are only 12-15 inches long. (In fact...they are closely related) Latin
name is: Storeria dekayii. These, however, only come
in one color: Brown and their bellies are a light cream color. They are not as
wide-spread as the RedBellys either...being a more woodland variety. They also
have a more limited distribution in the state, too. I have only found Brown
Snakes in the Minnesota Valley as far up as Courtland. If you find any of these
really cute little snakes around New Ulm or farther up the Valley (or farther
out onto the surrounding croplands) please let me know.
They eat Worms and Slugs and give live-birth, too. I once had a captive female
that gave birth to a dozen babies that were only 3 inches long. (They looked
like tiny brown threads with heads!)
