So I "liked" "The Reptile Report" on Facebook a while back and checkout most of the articles they post. A few nights ago they posted a link to a thread on a Field Herping forum. There were a ton of really cool pictures on that thread but one in particular caught my eye. Can anyone tell me what type of snake this is and what morph of said snake?

Re: Can anyone ID this snake for me? (not a BP lol)
I was going to say milksnake as well, but I wouldn't have thought Eastern. I didn't realize the juvi was so red. I have caught a few of these when I lived in Michigan. Although they were all in the 2 to 3 foot range (not juvi) so maybe that is why, but the color of the saddles was much more of a chocalate brown. No real red tone.
Love those red eyes and red saddles with the black and greys. Very cool looking snake

http://www.gpnc.org/milksnake.htm - Could very well be this guy. Juvies are much brighter than adults and there is a huge amount of variation in the shades of color and pattern on these guys. Here are a couple that I've seen out in the field.

An older one, and they LOVE to bite when they are this big!
What would really help is a location of where it was seen. Did the site say where they were herping at?
