    Snake i.d.?

    Hey guys, I found this snake that I have no idea what it is. Its a baby I just found and it keeps striking the side of the container if you get too close. Any ideas what it is? I live in Massachusetts btw.

    Cool. I don't know, but I know that it doesn not look venomous... maybe a king snake? I may have to ask my neighbor as he has close to 60...

    Cool! I believe that is a Corn Snake that will look similar to this later on:

    All we have around here are Garter Snakes

    that could be it, but the color of that snake (from the photo) seems to be more brown than the red color that that corn snake has. and it can't be an albino corn, they are orange... I don't know though, just my 2 cents.

    Others that have broken bands/colors similar to Ants are Scarlet Snakes and Red Rat Snakes. It looks like the juveniles of all these have bright white scales which turn yellowish as they age. There seems to a large variety of color forms for any name. Almost every snake pic is slightly different!

    I don't think any of those snakes live here. And it has a brown tint to its white scales the pic doesn't show.

    Cute little bugger. Looks like an eastern milk snake to me.

    Maybe. I did notice one thing, when I go near him he wiggles the end of his tail. (no rattle, but I think their would be if he had something to hit it against.)
