It is harmless, it's not as if it is an annoying cat or something?

I live in NW Missouri and I had never seen these snakes before this summer. It is not venomous and the name is Diadophis punctatus punctatus if you want to look it up. Nice little snake that is good for the garden. I guess I should learn not to kill first and ask questions later!! LOL Killed 3 of them today!!

He's a Red Belly snake. I caught one the other day and kept him overnight under a heat lamp. (He got caught out in a rain storm in a large open field and the temperature was dropping fast.) He isn't poisonous and will only grow to be a little over a foot long. They like to eat slugs, not people or pets. On another note, I just walked in the house after having to kill a juvenile copperhead. Be careful when you tread near snakes.

A snake that eats slugs? Where can I get one? Or ten? I'm really sick of squishy things under my feet outside in the evenings.

For the most part I'd much rather have snakes around my home than the things they eat.

I can't tell from the size, but I think it is the brown snake. They are very common, but hard to find due to size and color. If less than a foot, for sure, if longer, then it is something else. Hope you let it be. No threat at all to you or your pets.

Hard to say for sure, but it looks exactly like a snake I rescued from the stray cats a few weeks ago. It was a brown snake. Harmless to people, supposedly eats slugs. I wanted to put a leash on it but I suppose that can't happen.

The one in your pic looks to be full grown.

Yes its a brown snake, and after blowing up the picture I can see blood on the sidewalk. Good job killing a harmless snake. Listen people not every snake is a copperhead. You don't need to kill them. They will not bite. They will flee from you.
