    Hello everyone! Im looking for a little help.

    I found this snake in my pool cage last night and managed to catch it. I intend to return it to the wild in about five minutes here but I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out exactly what it is.

    I have figured out that it is a corn snake, but I am unsure of what kind.

    Any help is appreciated! I uploaded the photos. If there is another way to do this, please let me know!

    Cool forum btw.

    -Jay.

    Thanks for the reply. I let him go a little bit ago since I found him outside. Its kind of a shame though, he was really pretty and seemed to be quite calm. Even when I let him go he just slowly slithered away. If he shows back up around the house I may just keep him. Seemed like a really cool snake.

    I got some better photos of him as well that I will post up in a bit. He has the checkerboard and stripe belly like a corn snake. I didnt get photos of his belly tho, just his topside.

    Ok then. That was one of the pages that I was looking at last night. I just wasnt sure if this one was a different kind because he has orange spots on his back in between the normal pattern. However everything else looks like a regular corn snake to me.

    Thanks again for the input.

    Nah, just a normal corn snake, nothing special. As I said they are a dime a dozen around my house, amazing how colors can vary between individuals. Cute little guy though, when he grows up you won't have to worry about rodents taking over.

    That looks like a Miami cornsnake. They are the most common corn snakes in Florida hense there name. They are one of the smallest corn snakes and are only from 3-4 feet while most corn snakes are from 4-5 feet. The Miami is also the most stubborn snake when it comes to feeding since they are used to eating anoles. I have a Miami corn snake myself and they are very well tempered.
