found this little one in my yard, and want to know if i should be alarmed. he does not seem to have venomous traits, non viperous eyes nor triangular head. but i would like to be sure. i plan to set him free, but maybe keep him as a possible pet. i have several reptiles already and wouldn't mind caring for him/her but that would be only if it could be tamable and non venomous. what are your recommendations. what kind of snake is it?

Not a problem, I'll get back to you as soon as I get a response.

EDIT: where are you located? It will help with the ID.

You have yourself a Black ratsnake-Elaphe obsoleta. They make good pets though a wild caught might be a bit bitey. Care for them like a corn snake.
