Default Snaaakkee!

Monday while outside playing with my eleven month old son I noticed that the bluejays inn the back yard were much noisier than usual. After chasing them off a couple of times I noticed this three and a half foot black racer in the carport. Since I was out with my son and my neighbor was close by he kindly removed the snake. I was able to snap a few pictures after passing my son to my wife, who I warned not to come out through the carport door, and grabbing my camera.

It looks like a black rat snake. They are very docile and will let you handle them quite easily in the wild. A black racer will usually "run off" pretty fast from you.

Either way, I wouldn't get that close to it!
