    Anyone good with snakes? I caught this baby this morning in works break room. Usually I am quick to identify but my years of wildlife in Alabama and Missouri have screwed me up here in Ohio. If it makes a difference, I am located the Northeast Ohio.

    Thought corn snakes were all red but I was wrong. Quick search on black corn snake brought up a bunch like this:

    It's not a Corn snake, it's a Milk snake :)

    Edit: Forgot to say that Corns are not native to Ohio, Milks are.

    You might run an ad in the local paper, or look for "lost snake" ads; it could be somebody's escaped pet snake.

    If it were a milk snake, it would bring all the boys to the yard.

    There are 26 species of snake in Canada ;)
    But there are none in Alaska (or should I say Nome in Alaska?)

    That is the dreaded Ohioan Brown Back Breakroom Snake. They can grow up to 17 miles long and eat school busses ... at least that's what my contact at the x-file division of the FBI tells me.

    ...or, it could be the new corporate attorney taking a break. Did it have a briefcase?

    Ok I have no problem with snakes, I own 2 (Fluffy and Mittens), but seeing that many snakes moving around in one place would just freak me out.

    lol. Wow. I'm surprised the poor thing wasn't instantly killed.

    Glad to see there are some open minded people out there.. so many people think I'm crazy when I say there are benefits to having more nonpoisonous snakes around..

    On the flipside I want a pet reptile of my own.. I love reptiles.. maybe something more like a monitor of some type... I was once recommended to get an argus x.x

    More people need to be educated. Non poisonous snakes will keep the rodent population down. Give me a few snakes over a few rats any day.

    btw, I used to have a female ball python. Named it Monti :D

    Fluffy is a 7' foot Columbian Red Tail and Mittens is a 2' Kenyan Sand Boa. We used to have an Amazon Tree Boa that we named S.O.B. (What we said every time he would strike the tank when we walked by), but he was SO aggressive that we had to find him a new home. I won't have a snake that I am unwilling to handle. It makes taking care of it too hard.

    Hi XtremeAaron. Ok, Eyebette asked a coworker who happens to breed and sell milk snakes and has 200+ living in his basement and he is quite sure the snake pictured is a Eastern Milk Snake. In fact, he's really curious to know where you found it, down to the county, and says he'll take a pair of 'em if you can find another, thank you. :)
