This serpent is about 8" long. Give it a click for a better pic.

It is a pretty snake. It's the first one like that I've ever seen. I caught two of them in the basement of the house I'm living in while I go to school.

At first I thought it was a garter snake but after a little research it has been revealed as a juvenile rat snake. I think it's a black rat snake, could be a yellow rat snake as the juveniles are almost identical.

I'll be keeping an eye out this summer in hopes of seeing a full grown rat snake.

If you Google images using "rat snake" you'll find a picture of one.

And that concludes our amateur reptile session for today.
