Midwest Worm Snake
April 17, 2002- Alexander Co. IL

The first time I found a Worm Snake, I didn't know about their habit to dig the tip of their tail into your hand.  It is harmless, of course, but when it decided to "sting" me, I was startled because I didn't know what was happening.

I've found this species in the following counties:
Alexander Co. IL
Jackson Co. IL
