    Isn't that a garter snake? Once we found our compost pile full of baby rat snakes. Guess the heat was a great place to incubate babies, just not the type we usually incubate, LOL.

    Yes I think it's a garter snake. In the summer we have tons of them in our yard.

    We get those cute little ringneck snakes; then there are the 6 ft long rat snakes.

    Altho I am NOT a snake fan...I do believe what you have there is a Ribbon Snake. We have them here in Indiana...and LOTS of people think they are Garden snakes. They are in the same family...non poisonious....they eat grasshoppers, small frogs, and insects. It IS a cutie...but I think I would have had to change my pants, if I found one. [​IMG]
