We found this snake near a Belgian airport. It was in a Cargo from the USA. Does anyone know which species this is?

Peter,
When you click on the attached website it says: "Sorry that page was not found" . Can you try sending another photo?

Maybe you need to change the settings of the Picasa folder to public viewing instead of private?

Looks like a brown snake to me too.

Scientific name Storeria dekayi.

They are extremely deadly! (to earthworms, slugs, and other small invertebrates)
