My second snake for the season , but I've put out moth balls every where and didn't put any in the area this baby snake was found at.

I've not seen one like this, it has an orange belly.

Any ideas?

I'm thinking it may be a worm snake or a red-bellied water snake.

KA, it looks kind of like the brown snakes we see often in our flower beds. They are small. Here's a link to the Ark Game & Fish site. I use it a lot to id snakes --- cuz you know we've got 'em!
