They're pretty hard to see in this iPhone photo, but there are three heads in this picture. We discovered these baby snakes Tuesday on a hike in the back of Montara.

CORRECTION: We’ve been informed by a herpetologist that there appears to be a single dorsal stripe from the back of the head on at least one of the snakes.  This would indicate that they are garter snakes—probably Western terrestrial garter snakes.
