Recommended Posts

It was really small and already dead when i found it, i zoomed in quite a bit.  Just wondering if someone can help identify?

That's a water moccasin. In Georgia you need you be very aware if these

Not venomous.

Is either a northern brown or a garter.

Glad THAT's settled.. :)

i think we can all agree on one thing....  i jumped back and ran away like a little girl.....

from these GA snake pics, looks like it's likely either a brown snake or brown watersnake

I called it without opening picture. After the other review I looked closer change my answer to a garter.

Hard to tell from that photo but definitely not venomous based on the shape of the head.

Correct.  You'll only contract Ebolaids if it bites you.

Definitely a black mamba. I saw one the other day at the zoo with my grandson. They are so deadly just a hard look can kill you!

ain't no brother of mine Darren!!  i've no disrespect, but i certainly don't like them either.  i think i hit this guy the day before when i was mowing the yard because he was already dead and looked to be cut in his mid-section.  it looked like a tiny little baby guy so i won't be surprised to see some more somewhere around the place.

Right! And these are grown men :P......I know it's been a while Darren but since we are on the subject of snakes I caught a pretty cool one in the back yard a month or so back......A pine woods snake. Very beautiful little snake.Google it if you get the chance. Interesting enough they are finding out more and more colubrids with slight venom.

Mildly venomous?? That's too venomous for me. I don't hate snakes but am cautious of them and tend to leave them alone as long as they leave me alone.

Ah you have to see the snake man. Besides mildly venomous in the herp world usually means it paralyses its prey, this case, tiny toads, crickets, worms... you know toads secretion would probably have a worse effect on a larger person. It's all relative and yes I agree, leave them alone. This instance I was checking the yard for the venomous species since I have little ones. I knew it wasn't a viper.... I actually thought it was a hatching yellow rat when I caught it.

Beautiful little snake, indeed! Back yard, eh?
Sweet! I'll have to research the colubrid info.
My brother has been a herp nut since before 
I was born (13 years older than me).

He survived a canebrake bite when I was 12.
We always talk snakes, share pix, and so on.

We'll be breeding some pythons in a year or
two (when they get big enough).

Took youngest son fishing last weekend and 
he spotted a beautiful black rat snake on the
dock. He's almost 12. Some of you guys here
would have killed this beautiful snake!! Always
remember: Snakes=rodent control. :)

That's awesome man, I will admit my 10 yr will hold his Az. Mtn King but he would not pick up a wild snake like that. 

My oldest daughter loves to catch the frogs, toads and lizards.
