Venomous or Not?

Okay, in my last post I asked for comments about what kind of snake everyone thought this was. Nobody's jumping it to try to guess so I suppose I'll have to tell. After lots and lots of research, and taking tons of pictures so I could blow them up in my photo editing software to determine whether his pupils were in fact round or not, we are fairly certain that this is a Brown Snake. What a boring name for such a cute little guy, huh? Never even knew there was such a thing. Better yet...he's non-venomous! So, after several hours spent enjoying and learning all about this particular variety of snake, we set him free in the woods behind my house. Watch out garden slugs and earth worms...he's probably hungry!!
