The wild snake that got me to get my corn...

So I was doing yard work with my son when I spotted this snake. He's interested in lizards and such so I called him over. And he picked it up. We pet it a little then put it back where it was. And then two days later I was at the reptile store and picked up my corn Peach. I thought you all would like to see the wild one. From my searches, it is a Pine Woods Snake (Rhadinaea flavilata) but I definitely could be wrong. We are located in Gainesville, FL.

Cute snake. I wish we had wild snakes in my neighborhood.

snakes in yard

I have only ever seen this one snake and I've lived in this house for 20 years. I have seen a black racer on my Dad's farm but it was moving fast and I only glimpsed it. The red one above was absolutely a beautiful red color. Once I figured out what kind snake it was I was sad as they apparently don't make good pets. So I was off to the reptile shop. 8-)

I walk or ride my bike for miles looking for snakes. It's funny, but I rode my bike 15 miles one day and saw 2 Gopher tortoises and a spiny-tailed iguana, but no snakes until I got home. There was a kingsnake right in front of my garage. The coolest thing I've seen was a legless lizard, right in my yard.

Ohh, you live close to me! Definitely a Pine Woods snake. There are a TON of black racers here. Lots of cottonmouths. Lots of coral snakes. Lots of yellow rat snakes. Lots of corns, apparently, but I've only ever found a few. A decent number of grey rat snakes, which are super tame. The occasional blue gartersnake. The occasional Eastern diamondback rattler. Pygmy rattlers, but I've never seen one close to her- more out to the west. But they're around. Ringnecks are abundant.

Very cool!
We don't have nearly the snakes here.
