Whoo! Another snake in our back yard! We found this one lazing exactly where we found the last one, curled up at the foot of the nearest tree. Managed to take a better photo this time and went back to google with a better point of reference. We’ve now decided that they aren’t rat snakes, but rather DeKay Brown Snakes. Not venomous so that’s still good.
This one tried to slide away from us and put up more of a fight against capture. Bill had to prise it out from beneath the roots and flick it into the bucket. It was angry. It went for Bill a couple of times and put on a very good show of being scary, snapping it’s jaw right back and looking like it meant business.
As before Bill took it to the far end of the yard and released it out of the way down there.
