    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.

    It's a yellow rat snake [​IMG] !

    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!
