I found this little guy while I was out for a smoke at work...

First time I've ever seen a snake in the wild!

Anyone have a clue what he is?

My guess would be a Northern Water snake. What does the belly pattern look like?

Do fox snakes range into your area? Looks sort of like a little one.

He sort of has a checkered belly...

I have no idea what local species of snakes we have...

I don't think the Easterns have made it that far east (yet?).

Can you post a pic profiling the head, and a belly shot? And is the anal plate devided?

It could be some sort of racer I think. If I recall correctly they go through quite a pattern change as they mature. Not positive though.

I know I have an eastern field guide somewhere, if I can dig it up I'll see if there is anything similar in there.

I can't get any further decent pictures of him. He doesn't stay still very well.

He is a Northern Banded Water Snake btw...

He has been identified!
