Look what happened to find it's way into our front yard...

Did you guess?

Correct - it is 4 ft of skin from a rat snake.

The rat snake, as you know, is one of our buddies.  It chases around and eats rats and mice and other such varmin that inhabit our yards, but it is non-poisonous and therefore, of no real danger to people.

However - there always has to be a however - the rat snake is not going to be your pal, it will stand it's ground.  So do not attempt to give this snake a low five or a hug.  Just let it go on about its business.

BTW - the skin is still there.  Not that we are scared to touch it mind you.  We are just leaving it there as a warning to the varmin...
