    Doesn't look like a garden snake. It's to long. Put something like a stick in front of its head. See if it snaps at it.

    Why did I click on this link? WHY?

    I hate snakes. Can't even stand looking at them. They freak me right slap the hell out. Yet here I am. Posting a response in a thread called "what kind of snake is this" that's obviously gonna have a picture of a snake in it.

    Why do you people temp me into doing things I know I'll end up regretting?

    Thats not a huge spider.It's a small one. As is the snake. They are on a sticky trap.

    But I don't have that much in my paypal account!

    Guess I'll have to...:gasping sob: endure it. Just like I have been since I was 5. Don't feel bad, though. I'm usually pretty alright, so long as people don't post pictures of snakes on the internet.

    Hmm, not sure. The only snake I can recognize is a trouser snake.

    I'm not a psychiatrist but I did have dinner with Dr. Karl Menninger twice so I'm going to take a stab at this and throw out histrionic disorder. But since I'm not clinically qualified to diagnose there's no charge, but I still accept PayPal.

    It isn't a pit viper, or a coral snake so you're safe.

    It doesn't seem to have stripes running the length of its body like most garter snakes I've seen, so my guess is that it's a smooth green snake...

    That is indeed a garter snake, not a smooth green snake. The lateral stripes are clearly shown in the picture and the jaw line is distinctive and indicative of a garter. The smooth green snake has an entirely different head and jaw structure and the ventral plates are much bigger on a garter. Not to mention it's not even the right color for either sex of smooth green snake.

    Down in Louisiana they might be a bit different in appearance than in NY, but it looks a lot like a common garter snake.
