Found this fella in my chicken coop on Sunday evening.
He tried to creep out through the chicken wire, but I had three eggs missing today and I think I know where they are. LOL
I went in to report to my resident Snake Wrangler and he gallantly came out to evict him:
I thought it was kind of funny timing since I just posted about my snake phobia a few days ago:
This is a bull snake, so as snakes go, he's a good snake:
I was quite proud of myself. Initially, there might have been a shiver, but I thought I was pretty brave. When our boy saw these pictures he said, "Why did you need a stick?" LOL.
DH thought he was about 5' long. I thought he was bigger than that, but history shows that I am not very good at estimating the size of snakes. DH is 6' so I think he's closer to that. but I was not about to argue that point. DH took him to the shop and he has been relocated to another part of the ranch:
As for me, I'm hoping that concludes my creepy crawly critter posts for a very long time. I've never had my hair colored, but it might be time.
