My dad caught this in our garage the other day. I have lived in FL my entire life, and have never seen such a snake.

At first it looks like a Diamond Back.... but if you look closely the "diamonds" look more like an "H"

It is most likely just a rat snake, but I thought I would probe the ARFCOM Think Tank.






Edited: ok I hope this works now

I can't find my glasses right now. Is that a red x or a skull & cross bones? If it's a skull & crossbones I'd definitely say to stay away from it.

You got yourself the most dreaded sneaky snake in those parts...Quicker to kill you than the 3-stepper’s we saw back in Nam...
Here in Texas they are known as the dreaded Red X'er...
BTW the Red X’er is a distant relative of the Alabama Black Snake...

Attach it to a drill and run it down the toilet. If it clear up the clog it was a snake.

Maybe this is a juvenile yellow rat snake. As juveniles the pattern looks much like a corn snake. The blotches are replaced by stripes as the snake matures.


Handle with care! I dislike snakes, spiders, and other creepy crawly things......YMMV

What do I know, certainly nothing about snakes.....[

I agree with M-4gery. Looks just like the pic on the left, but this ones a little dehydrated:

A Corn snake or a Bull snake. Kind of hard to tell with the pic colors although Corn snakes are usually a little more orange.

That's one I would not screw with. It kind of looks like a little Copperhead (actually a med sized Copperhead).

1st snake looks like a corn snake had one @ boyscout summer camp.

Merlin's snake if Merlin is still living and can read this is a copper head. Mean little bastards. Note the shape of the head. They can jump about the length of their body. Don't ask me how I know. If you are bitten by it your skin will rot and the area will swell up and your veins near the bite will turn purple. You will begin to have a hard time breathing. Oh and I forgot. Hurts like a Mother #%*$@!..
The only good thing is that their fangs aren't as long as a rattle snakes.

Its all fun and games pretending to be the Croc hunter until.................................
Dont you guys read the warning before the show starts? It says something to the effect of

WARNING: DONT TOUCH UNIDENTIFIED SNAKES BECAUSE THEY CAN KILL YOUR DUMB ASS!!!

Duh, nevermind. I read the quotes wrong. I thought this was referring to the original snake. The other is hard to tell with the lighting.



I was going to download the pic and lighten it up, but it is a jpg_s, and I couldn't download it.

But I have seen and killed enough of them to know what it is. I still think the first one is a rat snake. If you look at the picture I posted, the markins are identical. The color is darker on the pic I posted, but they vary depending on how long it has been since they have shed.
