Thank you. I saved it from a swimming pool. It was swimming around looking for a way out.

Good job. Those brown snakes eat the living hell out of the mice populations. They're one of the best snakes to have around.

I find newly born Texas brown snakes every year when I clean up leaves around my yard. Funny, I don't think I have ever seen momma or poppa hanging around. They usually don't get very large, eating a diet of mainly worms and insect larvae.

No nasty attitude, either, though an adult would likely act a little testy if cornered.

Great to let them go . . . so they don't go the way of the garter snakes and horny toads of my youth.

It's a good scare tactic. Their mouths can't open wide enough to actually bite. But they will strike like crazy. Good save. thumb

a live one so it can do its job and keep rats out. They are pretty useless if they're dead
