It is becoming a routine plucking innocent creatures off the road before they become minced meat. I was walking behind a jogger as we rounded the corner, I saw the guy stop and look down on the road. He then looks at me and said snake and jogged away. I thought oh no a road kill as I got near, I recognized the snake. It was a Red-tailed Pipe Snake, a rather rare and harmless snake.I immediately started to photograph the motionless snake only to realize that the snake and I were in the middle of a road. As I gather my things, the snake began to stir so it was gathered up along with my things and hauled to the side of the road. Upon realizing that the snake was fine, I took it to the ranger station and took more photos as it was released into the forest. Burrowed into the leaf litter, part of the snake is visible before it was gone.We lost it for a while before spotting its head above the leaf litter.
