Is this poisonous?
There's one way to find out!
Come on help me out. I want to know if it's a garden snake or not
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.
It looks like a garter snake.
Where did you find 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?
And yet...and yet...you clicked on the thread...
Diagnostically it's a clear sign of...well, it would be unethical for me to go on.
I'm more freaked out by the apparently huge spider right next to it...
Thats not a huge spider.It's a small one. As is the snake. They are on a sticky trap.
You're right. I have no concept of scale here....hmmmmm...
Still hate spiders.
I'll paypal you 5 bucks. Just tell me what's wrong with me, doc!
Double my normal fee...tempting!
I don't risk losing my license to practice for anything less than $38.75...
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.
Histrionic? Me. Comeon, man. Seriously? WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO RUIN MY LIFE?
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...
What kind of snake is this?
Oh no... Thats snake tubo!! Be careful snake tubo is too wild...
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.
is it dead?
