Eastern Milk Snake. This milk snake can reach a length of 36 inches long. This snake is young, and has brighter colors than its adult counterpart. Their heads are small and slightly distinct from the neck. It has no easily defined habitat but is found in grassy fields, woodlands, rocky hillsides, and around abandoned houses. Milk snakes are many times mistaken for Copperheads, however, they are not poisonous. The white 'V' or 'Y' on their head is a key fieldmark for identification.
