:Apparently they do now... I suppose no one ever told this snake its range. I had several people say that it must be a smooth earth snake from the description I gave, which makes sense. But It is not. It is a flat headed snake. (even took it to MSU and got it confirmed) I wish I could get a decent pic to show everyone so you dont think I am nuts. But, flat headed snakes are known to be in Arkansas so it is not that far out of its established range. Thanks for the input.

::.....Flathead snakes don't live in Mississippi, if ID is still important to you.

Based on where you are in MS, and based on the description you've offered, have you considered that it might be a Pine Woods Snake? Brown, small, smooth scales? Without a photo, I'm only guessing. I don't know if I buy that it's a Flathead. That might be a state record for MS, but again, without a photo we're left to guess.
Glad to hear he's doing well whatever he might be :)
