Can someone tell me what kind of Florida snake this is?

http://fav.me/d5et1xd

I found this little guy about the size of my forearm in my backyard :P

I'm sorry I couldn't get a good pic of his face, it was pretty well hidden, no matter what angle I tried, this was the best pic I could get of him. But from what I was able to see, it looked a LITTLE bit like the face of a rat snake...but the pics i found online for Rat Snakes didn't seem to match his color pattern.

Can anyone tell me what kind of snake it is? I was thinking rat snake or crayfish snake....but I wouldnt know :P

    It's actually not a snake. It's a lizard. An Eastern glass lizard, aka. Eastern legless lizard (ophisaurus ventralis).

    I only like it whilst human beings ask what style of snake they simply caught. that is not a rattlesnake, that is no longer a button on the top of that is tail, that is yellow, which makes it, definite, a water moccasin (cottonmouth). of course you have no longer been bitten by potential of it, in case you had, it does no longer be adequate to kill you, using fact i'm useful you're a clever adequate guy or woman to realize that in the time of the experience that your hand hurts somewhat undesirable and starts puffing up and turning pink and black after a snake bites you which you're able to bypass to the medical institution. i could take it someplace and only unload it out in a ditch or pond... far flung from human beings. be careful and to any extent further, do no longer %. up snakes devoid of understanding what they are first.
