Eastern Fox Snake

Pantherophis gloydi

 

September, 2012. Michigan.

 

A freshly shed neonate Eastern Fox Snake flipped under cover amid a coastal marsh in extreme southeast Michigan. Young fox snakes lack the copper-orange head and yellow flanks that adults do, but are easily recognizable with the dark band across the top of the head. The Eastern Fox Snake is listed as a Threatened species in Michigan.
