A small snake in HP

 

 

 

Harrington Park herpetologists  — please help me on the identity of this little snake (look at the size of the leaf), photographed on Sunday just off the edge of a road in HP after the morning rains. I am quite sure that he/she is a garter snake.

Here are a few links to learn more about the snakes of New Jersey:
