Texas rat snake. Beneficial unless you have chickens.

Can't really tell from the pic , sorry . 99.9 % sure it's not a cottonmouth though . Too skinny .

"What Kind of Snake is This ? " on Facebook is an excellent identification site . Just ignore all the "Karen" posts about how you shouldn't kill a venomous snake since "they were here first" . rolleyes

I'll go out of my way on the creek or lake to avoid them but I don't tolerate Mocs and Coppers near my house .

My yard = my rules .

Texas Rat Snake or common water snake. The long slender tail is an immediate clue it’s no cottonmouth. Cottonmouths are never over 5 feet and that’s a monster. They have a very stubby tail.

I was focused too much on the head. It is skinny for a cottonmouth.

Pointed tail equals no cottonmouth.
