OMG, great shot, but hope you were using a zoom to get this close. It looks scary whether or not it is dangerous. As I say about things like this "might not hurt me, but might make me hurt myself trying to get away from it.

Great pic Liz. My dad was originally from NJ (Northvale) and he used to speak of finding copperheads up there but no problem with this guy. You can tell a poisonous snake by a head shaped like an arrow-head because of the poison glands on each side of his head.

I too think it is a garter snake. I just caught one yesterday in my yard and tried to get a photo when it had its tongue out but couldn't. Great shot!

Maybe gopher because it is trying to look like a rattler, but my first impression was garter.  Love that you got that red tongue!!  Either way, harmless. :) Can't believe I just faved a snake!! lol

At three to four feet, what you see is what we call a Gopher snake.

We have had a couple around our place. They are wonderful for
eliminating unwanted rodents. Treat him as your friend.

This is a great capture Liz!

Congratulations on your new AC.

Great capture with the tongue. My guess is a garter as well.
