Yea I went with arboreal too because the proctor was from Alabama which has the rough skinned species :lol: .

In all honesty though that was less of an excuse and more of an observation of how I carelessly left things to chance.

I found this snake in my backyard. I think it is a lined snake(the genus Thamnophis) but I might be wrong. Anybody wanna double-check? Thanks

After some searching on the internet seems to be Thamnophis marcianus or Thamnophis sirtalis
