Queen Snake
Regina septemvittata
Oak Ridge, TN
Note the round pupils of this snake's eyes. In the United States, this is an indication that the snake is non-venomous. Don't rely on this sign in other parts of the world though, the deadly cobra of India also has round pupils! Click on the picture to enlarge the image. Another identifying factor of this snake are the keeled scales.
This snake eats newly-molted crayfish.
