I couldn’t live in a house that had snakes in the blinds. Torch it...the whole place.

I think I’ll let him be. Be a nice conversation piece should I have any visitors. Also gives me the chance to be a knight in shining armor if by some chance a lady comes to visit and he shows up.

What should I feed this thing ? I want him to hang around a while.

That’s is a beautiful rat. He might bite a couple times but should calm down quickly with a little handling. You can do it.

Rat. Young 'un. Gently 'catch' him and post a photo. Distract him with one had and snatch him behind the jaws with the other. Or take the bites and rub some dirt on it.

Ok. I’ll do it. I want him to be my friend though, won’t grabbing him make him not like me?

Baby rat snake in photo 1.

Dead baby diamondback rattlesnake in photo 2.

Those that don't know snakes will typically kill either. On sight. Can't say I blame them. Both of these were near the front door to the hacienda.

Fouz that rat snake has some great markings. Is it a trans Pecos rat?

We've got this rat snek that hangs around. The boy and it have become friends. It's so slow he just chases it around and whips it with a stick. It's hilarious.

But this sumbitch, he almost attacked my landscapers. They beat the cobra out of this dude. Look at that cotton mouth! Cat eyes, rattled it's tail, hissed, cotton mouth, spit poisens. It was the real deal. Stolen Home Depot shovel to the face! To the FACE!

Is that snake urine on your shirt to attract snakes or did you spill your Nattie?
