keep it! today i found a dead gardener snake, it got him on the tail and died since it was so cold.

its a coincodence that you found it. If it haddent been u or another house, it'll be dead anyway. I think it was planing on finding a small rodent den or something to hibernate.

I say keep it till spring, that little thing is cold and hungry, u dont want it to, do you!? u can ship him to me, i'll take care of it till then

I'd let him go for sure...I've tried to keep these snakes before, but they only eat snails and slugs as far as I know which will be very dificult to obtain during the winter months...Wait until a slightly armer day and release him.

hi that appears to be a juvenile red bellied snake . The juveniles have a neck ring that they usually lose as they get bigger. regards Grant

get him on F/T pinks?? LMAO, a pink would eat this thing, i dont think you can honestly tell how small it is.. I'll try and get a couple pics for a size comparison..

Temps are supposed to go up to 18 by Thursday, the little guy will be let go provided we get up that high or close to it

EDIT:
As promised, a size comparison pic

With a Canadian Dime


Here's a couple more pics that turned out pretty good.
