Driftless Prairies: Native Habitat Restoration

Nature inspires awe!

Brown Snake

Status: Common

A most beautiful snake!!! Eats small invertebrates. The first time I saw one of these, I was enthralled with its beauty and wished, wished, wished I’d had my camera. He was hanging out around some building materials (when we were building the house) along with a garter snake. While I was working in that area, I uncovered the object of their interest — a mama mouse with babies attached to her.
