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.

ring snake in basement
Posted by michele on September 15, 2005, 11:34 am
Over the last year we have found a total of 7 baby ring snakes in our basement! My husb thinks they are coming in our basemet door! Besides fixing the door is there anything else to keep them out of the basement? i thought they got in by accident, but it seems for some reason they like our basement. Do they hibernate for winter? I live in massachusetts and am worried they are looking for shelter for winter.any input is helpful. i am terrified of snakes. ( i know they are harmless but i still don't like them and am ready to sell my house) thanks
