Steph found this little guy when we were mowing. Can anyone put an ID on it? He is now in the terrarium.

 

Pretty sure he is a brown snake.

To Me looks like a Grey Snake!  Snakes, yuk!  Make my skin crawl, kinda like a snake then, huh?  My wife goes nuts on a common grass snake, wonder what she would say. Just for info, did the daughter pick that up to show you and want in cage, or is that Your Idea?

Nice snake, nice skink--- unless you want a two in one package I'd take the snake out of there 'though.

I'm color blind but it may be an immature copperhead. I still remember the safety briefings from FT Bragg: 4 kinds of poisonous snakes. Good Luck, Rick

     Well it certainly looks brown to me!! :bigrofl: :bigrofl:  I don't know what kind of snake it is.  I do know that we don't do a garden here because the garden  looks great till the wife sees a snake in it, then she wont go near the garden for the rest of the season.  she is terrified of snakes and will run screaming at the slightest mention of them.

PS -That skink looks like dinner for the snake

"Habitat/Range: This snake is common in vacant lots and forested areas and may be found under trash, logs, and rocks."

 

Now you know what you have to do with your yard to get rid of them.

Not poisonous going by the outset eyes.  Also, turn him over & look at his belly lines.  in front of it's anus, the lines across are unbroken, and after the anus, the lines break in the middle.  Poisonous snakes the lines go straight across all the way to the tip of the tail.
