Question Snake - what kind?

We found this baby snake while we were working in the yard...... does any one know what kind it is?

We are thinking a "Corn Snake" - yet most of the PICS we locate online do not show any solid color corn snakes.

The snake is orangish red on top and yellow on bottom - we live in Central Florida.

Thanks for the link - I have been there already and none of the pics looks like this baby snake.


The closest pic I could find that looks like the snake I have was a pic of an adult Bloodred Corn Snake.

Definitely not a corn snake. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but my guess would be one of the three subspecies of the Florida crowned snake, Tantilla relicta. They can vary a bit in color, from brown to orange on top, white to yellow on the belly, solid colors with no patterns, except they usually have a darker colored head, sometimes with a separate dark collar around the neck. They generally don't get much larger than that, and they're a good snake to have a round, they eat beetle larvae, centipedes, snails and other little garden pests.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.

I have thought about that snake as well - but I was only able to locate pics of CrS with black heads with a ring around its neck.
