Found this beautiful eastern milk snake today along the river. These snakes are non venomous but are often mistaken for copperheads and killed. If you see one, please don't kill it. #flyfishingguide #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #roscoe #NY #reptile #reptiles #snake #milksnake #catchandrelease #leaveitalone #herping #herpatology

Awesome. Our contractors killed one two years ago thinking it was a copper. I was so pissed.

Anyone who mistakes this for a copperhead has never seen a copperhead.
