Black Rat Snake Eggs – Elaphe Obsoleta

Filed in Wildlife by on July 19, 2008 0 Comments

Well, well, well…guess what I found.

Today, I decided to venture outside into the wall of humidity to dig up and re-plant some rhododendrons. We had a few here and there that needed to make their way up the hill for a nice rhododendron line in the front. I think it will look very nice, come Spring.

Anyway, enough about that. Upon digging my second hole for the rhododendron, I discovered about four white oval things sitting approximately six inches beneath the dirt. I thought they were bird eggs. I left them there and went inside to tell Laura about my find. I knew she would get up and research what they were for me. She enjoys that kind of stuff.

I went back outside and took a few pictures of these things and then covered them back up. I had a feeling they weren’t bird eggs, but turtle eggs. I planted all the rhododendrons and then went back inside.

After I showed Laura all the sweat on my face, she revealed to me that I had just stumbled across Black Rat Snake Eggs. For photos of these creatures, click the link above. For photos of Black Rat Snake Eggs, look below…

Good thing I covered these eggs back up. I did have a strange feeling something was peering out from the woods…straight at me…
