    It could be a young King Snake, but I am not sure. I agree with the others here that it does not seem to be venomous.

    4 toxic snakes in america. All pretty easy to identify. Coral snake. Red and yellow kill a fellow. Only one other snake looks like it and it is a king snake. Red and black. Rattle snake well he rattles. Water mocassin, ugly as sin, dark color but look at his head. He is a viper. Head looks nothing like this one. and the copper head. Which is also a viper. The heads on a viper are pretty easy to tell the difference IMO. Its like comparing a jack russel to a pit bull. They have a not so friendly look with larger jaws. WM is the only one i have ever had chase after me. The others tend to want to get away. WM will charge and strick. But a trusty oz of hot lead from a shot gun slows them way down.

    It's a common garter snake. Here's one I saw while hiking in West Virginia:

    I believe the scales from the anus to the end of the tail will also tell you if it is poisonous. If there's a double row its non-poisonous and if its still a single row it's poisonous?

    Both snakes are red, yellow and black banded. The easy method to tell which is which is to remember the poem "Red touch yellow, kills a fellow. Red touch black good for Jack (or venom lack)"
