Pulled a bunch of equipment out of the college apt this morning to start the day and this fellow was already hidden inside of one of the drops. We figured it crawled into it yesterday when they were laying, drop cloths, outside on the concrete which is near grass and small bunch of trees. He must have gotten picked up unknowingly by us when we put equipment into the apt yesterday afternoon. Anyone know what it is? Have fun, Dave

Okay, I think I've got it—ghost corn snake. This morning's newspaper had a photo of a woman with a snake draped across her shoulders. It looked exactly like yours. They come in all sorts of colors and patterns. Here's a description:

"Ghost Corn Snakes are type A-Corn Snakes, that is they are hypomelanistic. This is a gene that represses black hue and anerythristic, which means that the red color is removed by this gene in these snakes. ... Ghost Corn Snakes display varying hue shades of black, brown, and grey, set upon a lighter shade of background."

They are not venamous or dangerous; their bite is no worse than a cat scratch. They're harmless to humans; they eat small rodents and small snakes.

The snake in the link does not look exactly like yours 'cause they come in such a wide variety of colors and patterns. This was the closest I could find.

Dclo

I've no problem wrestling a bear or getting into a fist fight with a lion but I don't care for snakes. We could eeeeeeek together, Mac.

MacTea

jals

Oh my! I'll bet you jumped a little. lol

Was not a fan of it hiding in our equipment at ALL. --Have good Sunday. Thanks eeky, Lynda n red. ";" D

I thought rattlesnake when I first saw it. They are awful creatures, but I guess they serve a purpose - out in the woods.

All I know is that it's a snake. I'd be scared of any snake. Very thankful that we don't have them here.

pasta

EEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. :)

Dclo

Wish I had a clue of better close up pics but I am not going looking for him, ha. Thanks blue n bomber. -- outta here for the night. Have good weekend, D

I have never seen any but rattlers do that tail-shaking so Bommom may well be right about the Eastern Massasauga.

Dclo

I'm not sure what was up? His little tail stood straight up like 1 1/2" and was shaking back and forth VERY quickly. It didn't rattle but I've never seen any other snake do that? Let it be known that I dont know snakes. I would not be surprised if it was some form of rattler. Thanks Bombom, D

Bommom

It's hard for me to tell the coloring, so here are a few other guesses: Northern watersnake; Eastern Massasauga, which is a kind of rattlesnake; or Eastern Milksnake?

Here's a resource for Pennsylvania snakes. Click on the names of the snakes in the list at the right to get a photo and more information.

I used to work in a building that was in rocks-and-rattlesnake territory. One day a woman in our cube farm saw a snake go under her desk. I went outside and found a suitable snake stick but when I got back in, no one could find the snake. The next day the janitors told our area that they found the snake and got rid of it. I'm willing to bet they never found the snake and figured they'd keep us quiet by saying they found it. My desk conveniently had cabinets above the desk so until I retired I kept the snake stick on top of the cabinet in case I ever needed it. (The woman on the other side of my desk told us that when she first started to work there, one day she found a snake in her purse when she went to get it out of her desk drawer.)

We weren't sure so Crazy Bobby picked him up with a few rags and tossed him back into the woods. He's welcome to stay on his "other side of the sidewalk". Thanks Bomber and blue, D

I can tell you a few things it's NOT, but as for what it is . . . sorry.
Most likely it's not poisonous -- wrong kind of head for most of them.

Bommom

Is it an Eastern yellow-bellied racer? You've got me.
