That's one of the good guys. They just eat mice and frogs and stuff. You can keep one as a pet.

They make great pets, but it is illegal in GA to own native, non-venomous snakes without a permit. It is also illegal to own non-native, venomous species without a permit. Native venomous and non-native, non-venomous snakes are both good to go.

Corns are all considered native. Some species of kings are also native. Both make great pets, and there's not much chance of either causing legal problems.

Thanks guys. You spared his life. I let home go..... In the neighbors yard.

When they are that small I can never figure out what they Are.

Next time give me a challenge. Its a common brown snake.


I'm 100% on this btw.

If you ever want to know if you see a type of rat snake, look around its belly area (you can usually see some from the side), it will almost always have a checkerboard pattern. The usual ratsnakes you'll see in GA are the black rat, grey rat, and red rat(corn snake).

Had a 3-foot blacksnake in the garage yesterday. I was using the leaf blower, so I blow him out of the garage and herded him into the backyard. If it had been a venomous type, he'd be dead. Can't have that around my kid and 3 dogs.
