Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh posted a photo of the snakes on its Facebook page, which were identified as Dekay’s Brownsnakes.

The snakes were found over the weekend, and were described as healthy and active, WPXI reported.

Rescuers said they will be “overwintering them” because their brumation space was interrupted, but then plan to release them into the wild.

Dekay’s Brownsnakes, also known as Northern Brownsnakes, are considered common and do not bite, according to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. The snakes grow to 9-15 inches long and eat insects, earthworms, slugs, snails and fish.
