    Seriously... I'm beginning to wonder how people see me. [​IMG]

    DH and coworkers caught this little guy in a room at work and he brought it home for me to 'identify and save'... [​IMG]

    I'm fairly certain it's a juvenile milk snake. PA only has 3 venomous snakes and it's certainly not a copperhead or rattler, so we're good. I released it in the pasture.

    Oh, gee, dont you love that connection? You know about chickens and dogs, so naturally, you can save a snake, LOL. But, you did!

    It's the same for me! Just because I love animals and we have some property, everyone thinks I want any free animal that may come along - "Our neighbor has an old deaf, blind horse that's missing most of it's teeth and he needs a new home-do you want him?" "A co-worker has a pot-bellied pig that's rooting up her yard - do you want him?" [​IMG] I have to admit, sometimes I do take them (not those two!), so I guess I deserve their questions [​IMG] Nice job on the snakey save - it's a cutie. Hope it's happy where you've loosed it and doesn't return for snacks!

    [​IMG] Oh gosh, even my parents have done that. "Hey, now that you have land, do you want some rabbits, pigs or beef cows? Our friends... yadda yadda yadda."... Really?! No, I don't want them. LOL I'd have to clear my land!

    Milk snakes here are like the old woodsmen.
    Grumpy and mean.

    Quote:Pennsylvania has 18 native snake species. 3 are poisonous. This little guy was found inside one of the silos at DH's job. I looked through all the online photos I could find. It was either a rat snake or a milk snake.

    Or am I wrong?
