Good Morning All - I was hoping you could help me identify this baby snake I found this morning? I live in SE Texas. Markings: Black, with a Yellowish/White dot on the head. Yellow Strips down the length of the snake and small Yellowish/White dots down it's body. I'm guessing it was about 12 inches (maybe more) long. It appeared to have ate something because it's body was pretty plump. My 4 month old box/mix found it this morning. It didn't appear to be aggressive, but then again it looked like it ate something waiting for the sun to warm it up. I apologize for the pictures, but I have added them for visual assistance. My concern is that it maybe posionous. If so, I'll have my eye out for it again. I hear that baby snakes can be more deadly than adult snakes. If it is not, then live and let live. I don't know much about snakes... we hardly ever see any around here... I just want my dogs and my family to be safe.
