Notes:
Unfortunately, this snake was in my cabin on a sticky pad. I'm not sure what it is, but it resembles a Prairie Kingsnake. It does have a light underside with black spots. However, from the maps, it doesn't look like that species is found this far north. I covered the sticky pad with olive oil and put it upside-down so that it could wiggle free. I'm not sure yet if it was able to free itself. Its jaw was damaged from the bottom part being stuck while the top jaw had movement.
