They didn't know or didn't tell you what it was? I hate pet stores they never know what they're doing.
It looks like a Garter snake to me. Or a Ribbon Snake? One or the other they look basiclly the same unless you want to count scales.

You should really find out what it is. How could you properly take care of it unless you know what species it is? I'm not knocking you, just a little upset that the pet store didn't tell you any info.

I found out that it is a Indonesian garter snake, thanks to the garter & ribbon snake forum. Now I can care for it correctly. Kingsnake.com is great!
