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.

My brother caught my son a ringneck snake in south eastern Nebraska. We had her for two weeks before she excaped. before we lost her she laid eggs and today we have 5 baby's. I have moved them to an aquarium that has 3 inches of soil and peat moss mixed. I put in an artificial rock cave, a water bowl and About 30 small earth worms. what else do I need to do for them besides a daily misting and am I doing things write so far? also, what kind of ringneck would they be. they are charcole grey with coral colored ring and belly. and one last question we live in indiana, is our 10 gal. aquarium going to be big enough for them all? And if not can we turn a couple out and or how long should I wait to do so.
