Oh neato... dont look if you dont like snakes.

So this is what Kate catches in the yard. Nice.... NOT. I dont like spider or snakes (I feel a song coming on...) and this snake is no exception. My guess is its a harmless (tell my heart this) garter snake. Kate wants to keep it for just the day. whew........

Not fun! I would say that is what we call a bull snake. It looks like a rattle snake (see the diamond pattern) but has no rattles on his tail. I can't see the tail but hoped you checked it for rattles. They even make a rattle sound. It's almost certain that if you have one there's a good chance there are more. Not to worry though they are actually wonderful to keep down mice and rodents. Could also be a gopher snake, they are similar. Either way they are safe to have around. Just scary.
