Living in a rural area one thing you see for sure is snakes. Here are a few we share our farm with.

We think this is the same snake that shows up every spring.

He is huge.

The tree is near the pond where I am sure he likes to have meals of frogs and field mice.

I have a rather large rat snake or chicken snakes as we all them in NW Alabama living under my house since shortly after I built.. It's name is Fred. I built on top of a field mice colony and it takes care of the mice under the house. Every once in a while it comes out from under the house by way of the AC unit to sun. I've had to rescue it a couple of times from the Hooligans. I've seen the Hooligans tackle a couple of snakes and it wasn't pretty. Blackie will grab one behind the head and snap it before I can rescue it from them.
