snake I.D.

Without seeing it's belly color, it looks like either a red or yellow belly snake (not sure of scientific name, I'm more into turtles and tortoises). Here in upstate New York where I live they're very common, we find them all around the place in the spring and summer. They feed mainly on ants, termites and similar small insects and are usually found near ant hills and under mulch and wood where ants and termites live. A "big" female is about 10" long and they sometimes have dozens of live babies which are very tiny at birth. They are very docile snakes and very easy to handle. T
