Emergance, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr.
This fox snake is just coming out of its shell.
Slightly reminiscent of a scene from the movie, Alien.

A female fox snake was caught and pit tagged for research. While in captivity she laid her eggs and they were kept and incubated to give them a better chance at survival.
I was lucky enough to get this photo of one of the snakes emerging from its shell.

Pantherophis gloydi
