After a brief hiatus (due to a very busy spring and few identification requests), I’m finally posting a new update. I received the photo below of a snake in someone’s back yard in a text message (that my mother forwarded, so I’m not sure who requested the identification) with a request for identification. I suspect that the photo was taken somewhere in Florida, since they have St. Augustine grass in their back yard (classic Florida) and the species does reside in Florida (although not exclusively). I wasn’t given any information except for the photo. Anyone care to guess as to what species of snake this is?
