We have these sweet little Western Earth snakes (Virginia valeriae) and stoopid people kill them then announce "I killed a water moccasin."
I typically dig these guys up when I turn over the veggie garden and the beds out front. That's when I dig in them at all, because I have regular bunny nests in the front beds, and tarantula colonies that I don't want to disturb. Using a spade fork has probably saves the population much grief, instead of using a shovel, since they burrow in the dirt and I see them when they slither out of the bed I'm weeding.
