What is this

(back story) I am a Boa person and never really showed interest in other snakes.
but a couple days ago Loki ( my dog ) was going Bolistist in my yard and there was a Big Mamma Jam ma Snake, and went to get a sterilite to put it in, well by the time I got back it was gone........Well today I was working on the shirting on my Trailer ,,,,(laying on the ground) when I got up this was connected to the collar of my shirt..... OK now the Question What is this ???
This a smaller one then the one I saw........ I'm in Up-State NY ......What is this cool looking snake Thanks for all info

looks like a corn snake. Can we see the belly? Is there markings that look like corn? Also try to get a better head shot. Thanks

Shaun,If I catch another tomorrow, I'll get a belly shot for y'all I let it go. . I want The bigger one....If it is a corn how big do they get ???? The big Mamma Jam Ma had to be at least 6' and a tennis ball around I thought it was a Boa I'm a city boy living in the sticks now, And I see more wild life then I did on the Discovery Channel Thanks.

Eastern Milksnake

That is an Eastern Milksnake Lampropeltis triangulum triangulum - note the "Y" on the top of the head - this is diagnostic. See Conant and Collins 1998 Plate 30. Also, if you caught it in NY State, there's no way it can be a Cornsnake.

That makes perfect sence. A milksnake it is. I live in Kansas, so our milks actually have red coloration in them. I forgot far east species are lacking the bright colors. I also wasnt sure if it was a corn due to the area, but Im not sure how far North they go. Eastern Milk makes the most sence. Nice looking snake, too bad its not red. Later

Definately an eastern milk,and a nice one at that.

I must agree, 100% Eastern Milk. The corns are way more placid. The Eastern are a bit more nippy. LOL They also have a blunter nose.
