I am usually up to date on my reptile identification, living out in the woods I need to know what I am dealing with if I happen upon one. However my hubby and I have both seed snakes in different areas that are very similar and we just don't know what to make of them.
the one he saw had a black head and third of the body, the middle third was a bright red and the tail third was bright orange.
the one I saw had a black two thirds and the tail third was bright red and the tip of the tail was orange.
Both snakes were a good 4-6 feet long and as big around as a woman's lower arm, it is a large snake.
Is this some sort of a king snake or something?
It would always move quickly out of our way when it saw us comming, so I haven't been able to take any pics of it. And my reptile book doesn't have a pic to go by, so I figured perhaps someone with experience might know. Any help would be appreciated thank you
