Snakes with Stripes

Males: 12-18 inches, females: up to 3-4 feet.
Bright orange stripe going down the back, velvety-black patches on the neck.  Juveniles: background color can be yellow and green, and still have black spots and bright orange stripe.  Commonly found around permanent bodies of water because they feed on fish and frogs.  Also known to feed on mice.

One of the most beautiful snakes in the country as far as I'm concerned.

100% harmless- they do not bite.

Adults average 12 inches in length.
Adults and young are reddish brown colored bodies with dark brown spots around the eyes.  Some have a faint light stripe down the back and they feed primarily on slugs and earthworms.  They can be found in moist flowerbeds, gardens, and moist woodlands.

Males: 12-18 inches, females: up to 3 feet.
Thin white or yellow stripe down the back, surrounded by checkerboard pattern of black spots.  Not necessarily found by water because they feed readily on rodents, but will also eat fish and frogs.
