To ask a question about a snake, don't reply to this post, go to the forum home page
and start a new post. Your question will get a lot more exposure. Please give us an idea of where you live, as reptiles can often be identified only by locality!
Please do not place messages about killing a snake, and asking what kind it is you have killed! That is like going onto a message board about dogs and telling about torturing one to death, and asking what kind of breed it was. You will likely get "flamed", and likely by the forum owner, depending on his mood that day.
A note about head shape in snakes: Head shape is a totally useless character for identifying a snake, and has nothing to do with whether the serpent is or is not venomous (poisonous). Many harmless snakes, especially when young, have rather large heads. Please describe color, pattern, markings, and habitat where the snake was found. The shape of the head will not help us in any way.

Confused- Baby Snake, Worm, What??

i'm really confused. In my pool at my house in California I found a wierd snake-like creature in my pool. When I took it out it appeared to have no head that I could see, and it stopped moving. It moved again when I put it back under the water. It moves like a snake, and it appears to be black with a little yellow like-- a yellow slender stripe... it's VERY thin and small. So small that I can't even tell if it has a head or not. It's probally one of the wierdest things i've ever seen and it's just wierd. Could this possibly be a snake?
