ID snake

ms_metisMay 28, 2007

Found one of these in our family room and then another in the yard. Anyone know what type of snake this is?

I posted this in the nature forum under snakes, but I thought someone from Jersey might have these in their yard.

Thanks

That is one of the ones we thought it could be. We went ahead and released it. It was sort of cute. My 2 yr old son was in love--so was darling husband.

I think it is an immature black racer, Coluber constrictor. This harmless snake always confuses people with it's colors, when young.
