Common Name: Eastern Wormsnake
Scientific Name: Carphophis a. amoenus
Characteristics: This docile snake has smooth scales, a small pointed head, and a tail ending in a spinelike tip.
Habitat: Burrows in the soil, rotting logs, and organic debris.
Size: Seldom exceed 1 foot in length.
Indentifying Marks: Very distinct looks almost mirroring an earth worm.
Diet: Insects and earthworms.
Breeding: Between 2-6 small white eggs are deposited under rocks, loose soil, or rotting wood.
Myths and Lore:

Pet Potential: A very interesting snake and given it's size and odd looks a neat pet but in captivity they are problematic and often refuse to eat. I would advise against keeping this guy as a pet if your a beginner.
