Your post really confused me at first. I read it as she found the snake in Newfoundland. After I realized it was found in the Houston area, if I had to hazard a guess, I would say Nerodia erythrogaster transversa..not sure of the common name for this sub-species, but the common name for the species type is Plain-bellied Water Snake. Anyplace you can find to release him near a creek or stream, or river, lake or swamp would probably work fine.
:My wife, from Newfoundland in Canada (No snakes at all!), found this in the garage this morning and freaked. It is the first snake she has ever been in close proximity to (6") outside of a tank. Please help me identify it and where it likes to live so I can repatriate it.
