Although we think that your snake is either a juvenile black rat snake or an Eastern milksnake, neither of which is poisonous, we prefer to have our reptile expert take a look at it. He is on vacation this week, but we will maintain your photos and question and share them with him upon his return. In the meantime, it appears that you have the snake quite comfortable in a terrarium.
