ID snake

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.

Pine Snake?

RE: ID snake

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.

RE: ID snake

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