    I was at work Thursday, and beside the building I saw a snake that I have never seen before. Overall it looked like a garder snake. It was about 2 ft long, and a little bigger around than a quarter. It was black with gold stripes down each side. It's belly was metallic gold. What made this snake strange was that it had tiny white specks int the middle of it's body abouve the stripes.
    Of course I tried to catch it, but it slipped away. The next day I saw the same snake in the same place. I cornered it between the building and a chain link fence. I was so close that I even touched it. I tried to get it to come from under the fence. It poked it's head out and then it struck at me twice, but it didn't open it's mouth. Again it found a way to slip away.
    I really want to catch this snake so I can get some pics of it. Does anybody have any idea what kind of snake it is? Does anybody know of any traps that I can set to catch it?

    Praps a piece of PVC with one end closed? Leave it in a good spot and see if the snake adopts it(totally theoretical)

    Well, Ozzy. It looks like you have to post a pic so we can all argue about it. No poisonous species fits that description, so jump on it next time so we can all see it. No elliptical pupil, no facial pits---Jump that sucker!!!! Can't wait to see it.

    Bugweed, I tried to grab it but there is a six foot chain link fence that he goes in as soon as he sees me. By the time I jump the fence he's under the building.

    scale count? dont really need that for figuring out where he lives [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] cant be but a hand full of snakes in Ohio. my problem up here is we have 3 species of garters. one, red-sided, has 2 populations. north of the Missouri River and south of it. the ones on the north side have severly reduced or are totally lacking any "red sides" the ones on the south side have the normal red sides. every thing else is easy to figure out. toads on the otherhand...........4 species/subspecies and i cant tell most apart.........never been much of an amphib guy.
