I'd guess a norther water snake, or a rat snake. What shape are the pupils? If they're round, it's not poisonous.I just had a baby snake slither across my floor
I usually just pick em up because we mostly have harmless black snakes but this little guy had markings all along it’s length almost like a python pattern
I’m curious what it was
All I had to grab in the moment was my trusty chicken claw backscratcher to hold it at bay, don’t think it’s poisonous but doesn’t hurt to be cautious
I’ll tell you what this snake wasn’t happy, never seen a little snake hiss so much, did my best not to hurt it
Almost didn’t get pictures because it was so furious
What type of snake is this, one of you guys surly knows View attachment 976782 View attachment 976783 View attachment 976784 View attachment 976785 View attachment 976786
You took one home to eat your rats/mice!?Black Rat Snake. Mine was extraordinarily friendly...and 5'-6" long. I picked him up in a building lot and he just wrapped himself around my arm and looked at me like, "got any rats?"
We have Yellow Rat Snakes here in coastal SC. There was a skinny little one in my driveway last year. Saw another this weekend in the same spot...bigger around but not much longer, around 2ft. He's all wiggly as a camouflage response to my presence. Put him in the woods on the ground and he looks like a stick.
I took the pic and then turned around (downsun) to send it to Miz Diane. When I turned back around, he had straightened out and was slowly moving into the bushes. I hope he doesn't eat the Broad-Headed Skink that lives under the deck...he's getting huge.
