Eastern Snakes Forum
[ Reply | Eastern Snakes Forum ]
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.

Re: Possible Eastern Kingsnake question
The property we live on is wooded and actually has the prescribed stream. Do these guys live in holes? if so, I know where his is, the dogs have been trying to dig him up for a while. My friend saw him about 3 weeks ago in the same spot that the dogs showed him to me. She id'ed him as a blacksnake, but his yellow is very vivid. I want to get a better look at his face to be sure, but I think hes most likely a Kingsnake. As far as snakevibes, maybe you just need to come hang out around here. I helped a 3 foot ringneck across the street last fall and we are always turning over rocks and playing with little Wormsnakes. The wormsnakes dont seem to mind being handled, but the ringneck got kinda pissed at me when I wanted to play with him. LOL.
