Thread: Snake identification

  1. #1

    Snake identification

    We have a lotus garden in our front yard, with gold fish in it. While seating the in the dinning room I notice something colorful was moving around along the side of the pond. I ran outside to see, it was one of the gold fish being dragged by a snake. Can someone help me identify what is it? Photos.

    I'm thinking it might be an eastern gartersnake. See - http://www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/...erSquamata.asp

    I agree, nothing worth worrying about, other than buying new goldfish. Consider it the price for having fewer rodents around the joint.

    Not the moles, but it will eat voles.
