    Timber rattlesnake. A young one. When they get older the color will darken starting at the tail to where the snake is almost black

    I think their rattles progress as they shed. I think they get a rattle when they shed after they reach breeding age

    I don’t think I’ve seen a snake around the house all year, the voles are really tearing the place up. Have had lots of families with small children move into the neighborhood, wonder if they’ve been helping with the snake “problem”

    The Ringneck and the Hognose are now classified as mildly venomous rear fanged snakes. Still considered harmless. The Hognose is the master of the “threat display”.

    DeKays Brownsnake, harmless. Used to get them around the house all the time in Winston.

    After finding a DeKay's brown snake in my yard last year, I did some research. They like to eat slugs, which I happen to have a lot of so a good snake to have around the house under the deck.

    I’m sure that I did... I didn’t want to do it, but also didn’t want to let an undesirable living in my yard if he was such... I have too many kids and dogs to worry about finding it.
