    Actually Ohio has quite a few snakes, including 3 Garter snakes. Here's a list of all the snake known to be in Ohio.

    SNAKES

    Brown snake, midland
    Brown snake, northern
    Copperhead, northern
    Fox snake, eastern
    Garter snake, Butler's
    Garter snake, eastern
    Garter snake, eastern plains
    Green snake, eastern smooth
    Green snake, rough
    Green snake, western smooth
    Hog-nosed snake, eastern
    Kingsnake, black
    Kirtland's snake
    Massasauga, eastern
    Milk snake, eastern
    Queen snake
    Racer, black
    Racer, blue
    Racer, yellow-bellied
    Rat snake, black
    Rattlesnake, timber
    Red-bellied snake, northern
    Ribbon snake, eastern
    Ring necked snake, northern
    Smooth earth snake, eastern
    Water snake, copperbelly
    Water snake, Lake Erie
    Water snake, northern
    Worm snake, eastern
    Worm snake, midwest

    I think that it's an Eastern Garter snake, but what puzzles me is the white specks and I don't remember seeing the stripe down the middle of it's back.
    I set a trap today, if it works I'll post the pics.

    Rattler, i am suprised at you! You should know that scale counts will always give you exactly what it is you need to know. What if it was an escapee from someones terrarium? To know for sure, scale counts and keying. Sometimes, where western plains, and eastern plains intergrade, you can get confused. Almost like a hybrid swarm in a bog. SOOO many color variations and things. Knowing how to do scale counts, never hurts.

    lol me memorize scale counts? suuuuuuuuuuuuuureeeeee. i kept/keep pythons and local species can be narrowed down quite fast. i suppose i should look up scale counts for carpet pythons and figure out what mine is but my money is on it being a hybrid anyways, beautiful snake though. lil jumpy, but has never attempted to bite. Ozzy. im surprised. didnt realize there was that much of a variety in Ohio. cool. much better than here. even with that list it should be easy to narrow down with a pic.

    On the website I got the the list from it has pics of each snake. None has the white specks.
    The amount of snakes here surprised me too. I've been here 3 years and this is the first year I've seen any snakes at all. I'm determined to catch this snake. I'll get him.

    I found a pic that has the same type of spots on it that the snake I saw did. This is not the snake I saw. I only want you to look at the white spots it has.

    You live in Ohio?
    I was going to guess a Queen snake as it fits that description from what I remember. I can't do a search at work(will get in trouble), but when I get home, I will look.

    There are eastern hognose south of here but that was not what I saw. I got a close look at his head, and his pattern was not like a hognose.
    I thought about a queen snake but from what I know about them they stay in or very near water. There is a river about a half mile away. I'm going to make another trap this weekend with a live mouse inside. I'll see what happens.
