Who is this little guy?

Postby SnakeSam » Sat Jun 15, 2013 12:12 pm

Can somebody tell me what this is? We found 3 of them, one was more greenish. Letting them go again now obviously, just wanted an ID for my snake obsessed son. They all have a yellowish underbelly.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply! A useful thing for our vegetable garden then if they decide to hang around.

Yup, I second Mitton.

This species was one of the first snakes I ever kept. Your son can safely handle it without your worrying about biting or anything.

The worst they can do is make your hands stink.
