Can one of you snake aficionados help me identify this critter. While relocating leaves from around the house I came across this one. Now I've encountered all kinds of copper-heads and black snakes here in my woods but nothing that has ever looked like this. It doesn't have the viper shaped head so I assumed it wasn't poisonous. Anyway it didn't bite me when I relocated it to a rotten stump away form the house. It's been really cold here in eastern GA for the past several days I was surprised to find it out on the rocks under one of the decks.
