This is a Texas Rat Snake I just got in as a rescue today. Three of them actually. This one had stuck eye caps. With a little soak it comes right off. The video does no Justice to how satisfying this is.These snakes are harmless to humans and make great pets!
One question I ask during my snake shows that get most people thinking is - "What would you rather have in your backyard 3 thousand rats or one little snake?". Snakes act as natural exterminators in yards, barns and other agricultural settings by curbing the rodent population AND BONUS prevent the spread of lime disease as they eat the ticks that are attached to these rodents
Say hello to my little friend ... This little fellow scared a guest half to death earlier this week at the farm.. This little cutie is a hatchling yellow rat snake. The last few pics are of an adult. As intimidating as an adult yellow rat snake might look, it is as harmless as a rope... Yellow rat snake juveniles are generally mistaken for different species of snakes, as they look different from adults. They have a dark appearance and are strongly marked with irregularly shaped spots or blotches, against a gray background. As adults the color ranges from yellow to orange, and is distinguished by four brown to black longitudinal dark stripes, running the length of the body.
