I'm not sure off hand what kind it is, but it is a cutie! I'm sure in Florida you probably have a wide variety of snakes. We've been seeing a ton of snakes this year around our property and I even saw a HUGE black rat snake while riding my horse the other day. Some years we hardly see any!

I think it's a dekay's snake.    Edit... didn't see the penny in the one photo.

Dekay's are dinky little snakes.

Check it's color underneath, it could be a red bellied snake.  They come in different shades of gray or brown and the bellied can be pinkish to dark red.... http://www.angelfire.com/ab6/jnjkapfer/redbellied_snake.htm

It's a yellow rat snake lol

You should let it go.  Don't keep it... wild snakes are meant for the wild.  Help keeps the rodent population down.  PM me if you have any questions!

Good Luck!

Yes... yes... yes... I know... I know... I know... I have a hatching addiction!
Wait there is another chicken I want !
