Midland Brown


Lined snakes and Midland Browns are secretive snakes that live underground.  We know all of their favorite places though and can find them easily.  
75% of the midland brown's diet is slugs and 25% is earthworms.  Almost 100% of the lined snakes diet is earthworms.  
Jasper has adopted a midland brown that he named Eckens.  Last night, Jasper fed him 8 slugs by hand.  He got quite plump.  When he eats worms, it is like watching Avery suck up a spaghetti noodle.
