Crowley, Texas. Not sure what kind of snake this is.

I gave the snake the name “No. 4” as it was the fourth rat snake caught inside our chicken coup in a week. Caught two Saturday and this snake yesterday. Put them inside pillow cases for safe, secure transport. Released them a couple of miles away hoping that is far enough to keep them from returning. If cornered, rat snakes will strike. No fangs. Serrated teeth that can break the skin. Because rat snakes eat eggs, the potential of transferring bacteria from a raw egg is a danger. Therefore, the lineman gloves. Typically a docile and curiosity seeking snake. George, the Great Dane, smelled the snake and determined it wasn’t a threat to him. The other Great Dane, Daisy, left the area rapidly not wanting any part of me holding the snake.
