Awesome find. I thought it was a Corn Snake till I read everything here. Beautiful!

I honestly can't remember he went through several of my photos while I was at work. I just remember being disappointed because I was really excited to make the ID. Now I'm excited again! Thanks for the help!!

What did the snake guy tell you it was?

It's a juvenile racer for sure. And I believe Eastern Yellowbelly Racer is the correct species for the area.

I've looked at your link and my other pictures of the red rat snake, and I believe you may be right about the racer. (MitchRay, where are you?)

I dunno. Another reason I thought it might be a racer is because it was pretty aggressive and that's a racer trait. Check out this photo:

I was thinking the same thing (or red rat snake). Is this the same snake?

First thing that comes to mind is a corn snake. Not 100% sure though.
