(Hinds County, MS)  Wet weather and warm temperatures are bringing some unusual spectators to a Mississippi courthouse.

Snakes have been found in the Hinds County Courthouse this week.

A former zookeeper says they’re not venomous.

He identified them as Brown Dekay’s Snakes, also known as earth snakes.

They have soft teeth than can rarely bite through skin.

Workers don’t care, they just want the snakes to stay out.
