This is a closeup of the eastern subspecies of the Milk Snake. Many subspecies of this species resemble the brightly colored venomous Coral Snake but the eastern subspecies in my area does not. Milk Snakes located here in the northeastern half of the United States and southern Canada tend to be a lot bigger in size as well. I do believe this subspecies is still a very attractive snake even if it is not as colorful as its southern brethren. :)
This was taken in my backyard in Cortland NY.
The scientific name for this species is: Lampropeltis triangulum.
