    its a ribbon or garter snake, not sure what species but i think there are several species and subspecies in your state. if he has milky eyes he is in blue and should shed with in the week. shoot me a larger pic at rattler_mt@yahoo.com and ill check

    I'm sure it's a garter. Rattlers right about it getting ready to shed.

    rattler sent you two pics.. if any good they can be put up here. i think it shows the eyes better than when i save to web... and i haven't figured out how to upload pics.

    so it s not mites, its a sign of molt? eyes changing?

    It is a wandering garter, I must have caught more than 500 of thses as a kid. Rattler and Ozzy are correct about the blue eyes being a sign of pre-shed.

    Well, there are blue eyed snakes too. They are called leucisics (sp). Solid white snakes with blue eyes. There are about 9 blue eyed, white ball pythons in the world at the moment. Many lucy corn snakes as well. Of course they were bread to get the white color with blue eyes, and I don't think they naturally occur. If they did they wouldn't last long. Too visible to have a chance.

    As all the others said though normally the blue eye coloration is a pending shed.

    Most Lucy corns have white/grey eyes
