According to
baby snakes are called:

  neonate (a newly-born snake), 
  hatchling (a newly-hatched snake)

More reading shows that neonates are babies that
are born "live" (not really, but it seems like it - see 
for more), while hatchlings are from egg-laying species 
(which includes Pythons).

"Snakelet" has a cool sound to it, tho...
