Ground Snake (Sonora semiannulata)

Ground Snake (Sonora semiannulata)_2
If you think about it, since snakes lay eggs that are much smaller than the actual snake, very tiny snakes must be what hatches out of them. However, until a little snake like this, it’s really hard to understand. This snake could fit inside a regular fast food straw. It’s long and curly but, really really tiny. The Internet suggest they can grow to about a foot in length, and this critter was about six inches long, so it was half grown … which means it started even smaller.

That’s right, you’re living in a world full of little teeny tiny snakes that you never even see.
