Can't tell. Pattern looks similar. But head I can't tell. Looks long and skinny thought copperhead where stubby looking
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:58:41 AM EDT
Looks like one to me without looking for pics to verify. Triangular head. If not its got a decently close pattern.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:59:21 AM EDT
nope

looks like a corn snake, non-pointy head
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:59:40 AM EDT
water moccasin?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:59:51 AM EDT
Not triangular enough IMO.  I vote no.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:00:30 AM EDT
Also looks young. If thats a spider glue trap than its what....10 inches long?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:00:47 AM EDT
Plains rat snake.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:00:50 AM EDT
Judging by the picture I would say yes.  Need a better pic but I would say it has all the characteristics of a copperhead.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:01:10 AM EDT
Corn snake. Let him go.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:01:20 AM EDT
Not a copperhead.

Rat snake or something similar.  If you can free it without killing it they are good snakes to have around the house.

The v on the head makes me think corn snake.  Did he eat the mouse on the glue trap?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:02:27 AM EDT
Thanks guys.

It does look more like a rat snake to me.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:02:28 AM EDT
I would expect a wider head from a pit viper.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:03:02 AM EDT
Most definitely not a copperhead. Looks like a corn snake at a glance. Free that little guy and let him do his job.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:03:03 AM EDT
No.

It is close enough that I would have shot first and asked questions later.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:03:25 AM EDT
Scales underneath tail are a good indicator. Double row vs single row. Wiki is your friend.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:03:59 AM EDT
Corn snake.
Often mistaken and killed by people thinking they are copperheads.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:04:00 AM EDT
Head isn't right, a Viper head is very triangular and muscular looking. I agree with some, looks like a corn snake.

Looks nothing like a copperhead.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:08:25 AM EDT
Looks like a juvenile rat snake.

A copperhead that size would still have a yellow tipped tail.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:08:55 AM EDT
No.

Even very young copperheads have a VERY pronounced triangular head. 
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:08:58 AM EDT
Texas Rat Snake maybe?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:09:14 AM EDT
No. Rat snake.

Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:14:38 AM EDT
That's a diamondback copperheaded rattlesnake. You can tell by how it is. Neat.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:16:40 AM EDT
Copperheads have pronounced "hershey kiss" patterns on their sides.

Obviously I am not an expert at identifying snakes.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:20:08 AM EDT


The pattern is somewhat similar, but the head doesn't look right for one.

I agree with the people who say it's a rat snake.  Good little fellow to have around, keeps the vermin run off.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:21:07 AM EDT
It's a juvenile rat snake guys. Not a copperhead. Not poisonous.

Looks like he just ate.

Warm soapy water and free him. He is there because you have a rodent infestation which is evident by the glue trap.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:23:44 AM EDT
Rattle moccasin if I ever seen one!
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:24:23 AM EDT
How would you get him off that sticky trap without pulling his skin or scales off?   Soapy water?   I doubt he would like mineral spirits much.   Or are these trap things not that tacky?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:26:16 AM EDT
Milk snake?

First thing I thought of.  No yellow on the tail.

Grab ahold and pull.  He will come off.   Last year I freed a larger snake from several glue traps it had got in and released it outside.   A few minutes later my 12 year old comes and tells me he just killed a copperhead.  Same snake.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 11:40:23 AM EDT
That's a rat snake, he's like your very own pest control, let him go.

This. Had one with that same coloration and pattern; Shy Ronnie was his name and he was a mean little bastard but fun as hell for a pet.

This, exactly.

Do not just rip the snake off the trap, that's how they end up losing a ton of scales and skin which is not only painful but leaves them vulnerable to infection.
