Sure enough a wild eastern milk snake about 1 1/2ft. nice color and was alittle scratched up and also gona be checking its mouth.. Its really scared and i have fixed it up in a nice house with a hide, it apears to be in the blue.. so im gona care for it for awhile and see if i can get it to eat and then in about a week turn it lose out by the swamp where theres no people and no cars... Just a typical day at home,, mom to the rescue again...hehehe!!!! ;D

      Don't feed it please. Let it shed and set it free. What ever you do don't feed it unless you're keeping it please. Let it keep its hunger and fear of people. I know it's hard because they are so beautiful and you just want to help the little one, but if you feed it than you need to keep it. But I want to thank you for the rescue of that one. Easterns are a big favorite of mine. s8.gif

              Hi Barracuda_41,

              Eastern Milk snake, you must be closer to my area in NY then I assumed. Some reason I always thought you were from the mid-west. No clue why. I just released a good size black snake. This guy tried to cross a busy road and had its tail sqwished into the pavement. It looked worse then it was when I found him. He ended up losing 2 inches of his tail, but recoved fine. I wanted to get some pics of him, but he didn't like that idea.. Hid 99% of the time I had him, and he didn't care too much for being held. Trust me a 4 foot black snake has a real big mouth.. Sorry I am rambling. Just nice to see there are others that will take in a hurt snake and recover and release..

                8)Well i checked on this girl and she seems to be doing ok, still not to sure about her mouth. :-/ the scratches on her will heal and shed out but if theres any damage to her insides or her mouth i dont know how shes gona end up.. She came out of her hide house and wanderd around and is now hanging at the end with the heat pad under it.. when i get near the cage the only thing she does is rattles her tail, to funny to see her try to mimic a rattle snake, she dont get in strike pose or anything.. Il keep her for few more days to make sure all is well and after she sheds she will go out to the swamp...

                  Eastern milksnakes are cornsnake wannabes. Good for you to rescue this snake from any more harm, Tracey.

                    Actually with all of their morph the Corns are the wanna-bees! It really doesn't matter because they are all Lampropeltinae whether they are Corns, Kings, Milks, or Pits. I would still like to see the markings on an Eastern Milk caught in that part of the country.

                            We can only hope! I would love to repopulate certain areas that have dwindled numbers, but there may be a reason for the shift in there regions.
