    Hubby went to throw some scratch out this morning when he got home from work! I do believe if it had been me I'd have either had a heart attack or peed my pants!! [​IMG]

    That's a harmless gray rat snake. Good for keeping mice and rats away. Too bad you killed it. [​IMG]

    Is there a problem with that type of snake eating eggs? I would have rather seen it relocated so it could do work for you by hunting down the mice in your barn.. which given the size it was doing very well... [​IMG]
