Just in case anyone was wondering, Joey emailed that picture to the DNR, who declared it a fox snake. And though creepy and icky and all around awful, fox snakes aren't venomous. Actually, according to the woman at the DNR, you can discern venomous snakes from their pupils, which are vertically split like cats, whereas non-venomous snakes have round pupils. The DNR lady then made a good point that most people won't get close enough to a snake to analyze its pupils. Correct.
