Cool. I'm probably the worst here at identification, unless it is a ball python. I'm hoping to improve. You might want to check out the Virginia Herp Society. Membership is pretty cheap and their field herp opportunities sound great. The President of the organization is a member here (LeftofLarry) and several members are here.
