Default Yep, Tantilla coronata

Sometimes the "Crown" is far brighter than on your specimen. If I recall correctly, they are members of a poisonous family of snakes with rear fangs. Of course these little snakes could never be a danger to you because their mouth is way too small to bite you anywhere.

Cute little critters. Glad you didn't kill him.

Thanks for sharing and releasing alive. There are a bunch of small "litter" snakes in Florida that share some superficial similarities, all of which are harmless.

The snake is not actually a southeastern crowned snake and definitely not a ring-necked snake or an earth snake (all of which are distinct species). It is actually a species of the storeria genus, which includes the brown snakes and red-bellied snakes in our area.

I am fairly certain that it is a red-bellied snake (Storeria occipitomaculata) and not a brown snake. If it had a bright red belly, that is what it was, but they don't always have that characteristic.

Here is a link to an account for the red-bellied snakes: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology...ulata-obscura/

Just don't use the pictures alone as red-bellied snakes can be extremely variable in coloration, from dark gray to reddish brown. The site also has a decent online guide to Florida snakes if you want to use that: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology...dentification/
