I found a baby snake in my compost pile yesterday. My husband wants to keep it.
Can anyone help me identify it, give me advice on what to feed it, what sort of a cage it should have, etc?
It is about six inches long. Its back is light brown, with a very thin stripe down the middle of its back,
the belly is black. It has a light/dark brown spotted pattern along its sides. Its eyes are round and black.
It was a little frightened of us at first, but now has become very tame.
I can't put it back in the compost pile since I am digging up compost for my plants constantly, and I'm afraid of
accidentally hitting it with my shovel like I almost did the first time.
