Glad you came to visit Kacee. This site is a reference site and I do try to visit it when I see that there is a notice that I have had a visitor....Visit as often as you like to enjoy you love for these beautiful creatures.

I used to play with non-venom snakes as a kid....never hurt one and always turned loose in a safe place when the contact was at an end.

enjoy the moment
When we (my husband and I) see snakes in our yard we scream like little girls (yes, even my husband). Shhh, don't tell him I said so Big Grin

But, we could never kill one....live and let live! Okay, I'll be honest. We did consider relocation...or dislocation of a unwanted snake in the yard to a nearby empty lot...but could not bring ourselves to do it. They eat rodents...right??? They are a good thing to have in the yard, right???

yes esp. the non-venomous ones are beneficial to barns, yards and gardens. Its the venomous ones you call for help relocating. Never try to catch it yourself....don't want you harmed. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

No venom here, just the basic garter snake.

I had a question about a rat snake. I often find them in the hens' nest boxes and don't mind that they eat the occasional egg as they also seem to keep my barn relatively rodent free. However, recently one ate an egg on one box, crawled through the mesh to the next box and ate another. Now he was trapped as the eggs would not fit through the mesh. Unfortunately the second egg was a ceramic "decoy" egg which he could never digest. What should I do? I tried to harass him to get him to regurgitate the decoy; I got him plenty mad, but he did not eject the egg. I decided to see if he would figure it out with time... Days later he was still there and had not digested the real egg which would have allowed him to escape. I could not stand to watch him die a horrible death so I decided to decapitate him with the limb loppers. I even bought new sharper ones and practiced beheading a piece of garden hose. I steeled myself for the slaughter and headed for the coop. There I found the ceramic egg back in the nest and no snake! ??? How far down can an object go before it can no longer be rejected as inedible? (This egg was about 18" into a maybe 4' snake.)
And is there a proven method to speed the process?
