    I too have raised both and I see a lot of red in that picture, at least on my computer. Eye appears red. Never seen a grey or black have that! Who's arguing anyway?

    It's a snake that's found in the wild. :) It's not even a cool snake like a venomous snake so who cares. A friend on here recommended a book to me and I bought it. It's the "Peterson Field Guides of Reptiles and Amphibians". Great book and it will help you tremendously in identifying creepy crawlies. :)
     
  7. This is not a rat snake.... the checkered belly is a tell tale sign of a Milk Snake. Another way of identifying a milk snake is by looking on the nape of the neck. There will be a tan or reddish mark just below the head that will look like a "Y" or "V" shape.

    Not to mention the snake has already turned back into dirt. This was posted almost a year ago. LOL
     
  11. Ok,

    Since there seems to be several opinions as to what this snake is, I have included a link with pictures.

  12. I apparently should have read the rest of the thread before I posted my link, But since George Roof mentioned it.... curiosity makes me wonder. What does Kirby specialize in?

    LOL, Reptiles. He breeds them!!!! He is the goto guy on snakes and other reptiles.!!!!
     
  14. Wow...then I too would go with Kerby. Although I never claim to be an expert, I learned a long time ago I you don't specialize in something you may be wrong...LOL So I may be wrong in saying its a Milk Snake
