My dad used to say that there are only two types of snakes to be afraid of, live ones and dead ones..

It is not a venomous snake. It surprises me how many people are quick to call any snake they see a moccasin or copperhead.
Rattlesnakes are easy enough for anyone to identify... by the loud buzzing thingy on the end of their tail. So really, all you need to do is learn how to identify 3 snakes... coral snakes, water moccasins, and whatever species of copperhead lives in your area. That way, when you find a snake, if it doesn't look like one of those three and it has no rattle, you don't have to worry about it!

SO VERY TRUE. I like to run straight at snakes when I see them (or any dangerous animal). A moccasin is the only animal that's ever stood its ground, and then advanced on me! Also they are super duper fat and wide.

Thank you for not killing it. Because I'll tell you what type of snake it is. It's a cute snake.

Hard to tell, but I'd say either a rough earth snake or Texas Brown Snake.

That is a texas rat snake, it is not a black racer, water moccasin, brown snake, or earth snake. Here is some info and pics for you. These are pics of a larger texas rat snake.

http://www.bugsinthenews.com/Texas%2...inney%20Tx.htm

You wouldn't have to worry too much about getting bit by one that small, but the larger ones can be worse than a venemous snake. The reason why is they eat rats, which carry nasty bacteria and disease. The bacteria are found all over the mouth of that snake. If you get bit, I hope you have insurance, time, and good doctors. But again, with one that small, probably not much to worry about. I was studying to become a herpatologist for a while and my guess is a Texass rat snake.

This one is on the wood pile. I pulled the tarp off, and there it was. However, I don't think it is poisonous but not sure what kind. He/she doesn't seem to want to leave so I suspect there are eggs somewhere.

Whoever said that's a breakfast snake got it wrong. It's definitely a dinner snake.

Kidding. Leave it be. They are great at keeping the pest population down.

Kev....

What you have there is a young Eastern Coachwhip (Masticophis flagellum flagellum). I can tell it's a young'un because the upper body is a little lighter than an adult. It is not a brown snake or a rat snake. He will grow to over eight feet in length. They are Colubrids and non-venomous. They are also not real common in Texas, but do inhabit that area. Take care of him/her and it will keep mice off your property. They are extremely fast and will bite (usually at your face!) as they are a nervous species. Looks like its tail had an "accident". Found a good example in a video on You tube.


Beautiful snake Good video and pic, made I.D.ing it easy.

Without a closer look hard to tell. browns usually have black across head by that big. Cottonmouth has same markings on back as brown but usually more yellowish tail first glance i would say cottonmouth but that small without being infront of it impossible to tell from vid.

Well, one thing I have learned in the last week, snakes really like wood piles. I was stacking wood this evening, thinking to myself: "There is no way there will be another snake in this wood pile again because the pile of wood had been moved." So I was on the look out for black widows (and had my gloves on) because they are every where around here. And there it was, scared the crap out me again.
