I saw the smallest snake I've ever seen yesterday while mowing. I first thought it was a worm but as not and dry as it has been I took a second look. I didn't have anything to take a picture but it was roughly 6" long, smaller in diameter then a pencil. If this thing could get its mouth around a pea I would have been impressed. I made a number of passes on the mower trying to figure out what it would eat being so small. It was a black color with a bit of a blue hue to it. Seemed harmless so I got him out of the way and kept going.
