:::Pic didn't help much. Try researching the genus Virginia. Could be a rough earth snake. Thamnophis are seldom one solid color.

:I agree. Also, what told you T. s. annectens (aka Texas Garter) lives in NY? Garters are usually conspicuously marked at a young age, and have some pigment on the ventral surface. Again, I believe that a rough earth snake is very possibly the snake you have. You might also want to consider a flathead snake or a ground snake.

Rick What you have there is a Texas night snake(Hypsiglena torquata jani). I recognize the head as I have several of these snakes.If you look closely you'll see that he has nocturnal eyes like a cat. They are rear-fanged, but harmless. You can coax him into eating rosy red minnows or tree frogs.
