Carphophis by michael-ray Carphophis by michael-ray
Carphophis vermis - Western wormsnake from Scott County, Arkansas. These fossorial snakes are rarely seen above ground but can often be found under rocks within their habitats. They're a rearfanged, though harmless species.

Awesome, looks much like a Xenopeltis, though not related.

Nope. They have similar habits, both being semi fossorial, but that's about it.

He (is it a he?) looks so silly with those tiny eyes and invisible mouth. :) Such strange snakes these guys are! Lovely photo, the lighting is perfect the way it makes him sparkle.

I don't remember if this was the male or female. I ended up flipping a pair of them, but only held onto one for photos (then released it where found)
