Black rat snake. Harmless, keeps vermin down.

"flaring his tail", I guess means vibrating it.  Hog-nsed snales do that, I saw a gopher snake in dried leaves that did a good sound impression.

It impressed my dog, but for humans a snake with a bare tail pretending to be a rattler is a pretty good indication of "harmless".

And now we know they keep Mormons from ringing your doorbell.  (That technically falls under keeping vermin down.)

My 11-year-old son would love to find a snake hanging out over our doorbell.

Until a wasp flies by. Then he'll run screaming into the house and refuse to go outside until the weather gets cold.

I've had a banner year for garter snakes around the house. Ugh, I'm tired...never mind.

Hello? 911? Yeah, I saw something suspicious on my doorbell cam, so I went home to investigate and now the whole place is on fire.

Nope. Dunno how it happened.

While I personally don't mind snakes... Someone I know referred to one as a "big ol' nope rope." So I had to share the term.

I had a corgi who would rear up, put his front paws together, and stomp on a snake's head until it was dead. I have no idea where he learned it (he was a rescue), and I had to keep him from smashing every harmless snake we stumbled across.

Current corgi mix sees a snake and freaks out in fear, leaving my pomeranian to investigate and chase it off.

There's a perfect prank for April 1.

That's a black rat snake.  Completely harmless (unless you happen to be a rat) and known for it's ability to climb walls.

Also, at least to me, it's completely adorable.

This one from a few years ago; please note the toad in its mouth and diameter relative to the garden hose.

We needed to replace the front door and the boss wanted a larger door so we had to pull the door frame out and enlarge the hole. We got everything re-done except for repairing the stucco around the outside which left really ragged edges around the doorframe.

For some reason, this six-foot-long Bullsnake decided we had created this as a Power Gym for him. It's always "fun" to step out of the house in the morning and have a Bullsnake drop his head down in front of yours to say Hi. That'll wake you up better and faster than coffee. He scared the crap out of all of us regularly for a few months before the boss finished up the wall around the frame.

I had a cat who did the same with bugs and mice. I didn't teach her to do it but she would bring me her kills. I didn't teach her to do it but I encouraged her with treats

You can get them out of there pretty easy with a can of hairspray.

Oh yes, and a match.
Almost forgot the most important part.

LOL None of us are scared of non-poisonous snakes. The only time it was a bother was when he got into the house, a six foot long snake can be difficult to 'encourage' to go back outside. You'd be amazed how many places in your house a snake can get into that you can't get them out of.

Pshaw. In northern CA we've got plenty of rattlers around, killed a few, but since we live on the edge of the woods there's always more. Generally they try to avoid people and would much rather escape than attack. A little awareness goes a long way.

My house backs up to 400 acres of Missouri woods.
I feel ya brutha.

CSB? Sure.
My ex was dead scared of snakes. Decorator type..you know?
Had to have a wreath right in the center of our entryway door. Suction cup right to the 4 foot oval window, right into the foyer.
One Sunday morning she was cleaning the inside of that window and a 2.5 foot long black snake that had nestled into the wreath turned his head, looked right at her and her windex, stuck his tongue at her and went right back to sleep. For about a second...
He must have thought there was an owl nearby, because about the time she figured she'd better screech really loud and fall backward into her puddle of pi$$ she was making, he slithered down from the door and under the porch.
I'd gone with him if I could fit between the rails that easy, because that whole house hopped about a foot from the foundation when she jumped up, slipped in the pi$$ and fell flat on her DD's.
I'm not one to wish evil on anyone, but looking back, I have to admit I took great pleasure in her sudden misfortune. Then and now.

Dad?

But I'd love to see a snake like that. With the rodents around my neighborhood, I'd hope he has a big family.

There are no snakes in my corner of the world, so as far as I'm concerned I'm going to treat every snake as if it were a mamba and keep my distance because I just don't know the difference.

We get little brown snakes in our garden.  Cute little living segments of dirty Paracord.

1funguy: that's a volume that can only be produced in shock like that. I had a spider land in front of me as a child... I was eating breakfast and it nearly landed on my plate. Shook the whole house, mom thought there was an axe murderer breaking into the house to make me scream like that....  Nope just this poor little house spider who snuck up on me. Poor thing was paralyzed by the scream

I don't get the whole fear of snakes thing. Just need to know what any local poisonous types look like.

Of course, I grew up outdoors and spent a lot of time in the woods. My buddies and I loved finding garter and black rat snakes and would pick them up whenever we could catch them. See also: toads, salamanders, crayfish etc etc.

I don't even kill spiders in the house if I can help it. Farkers kill bugs.

The worst I've seen on our Ring doorbell cam is a hive of wasps trying to build a nest around it. Which, as someone allergic to stings, made me cringe.

A snake on the other hand, that's some next level "nope".

I've seen similar video before, but I do live in Texas. Before our subdivision blew up we'd find rattlers all over. For awhile people would come get my husband if they found one on their property and he'd dispatch it. Baby rattlers are the worst though.

My husband accidentally picked up a baby rattler once, said it was only about five inches long and the markings weren't really clear. He was holding it in the middle of its body and as he was turning it this way and that to look at it he noticed the button. . . he said he just flung it away from him as a reflex after recognizing what it was. He said he was a bit more careful and looked twice as hard at things before he picked them up after that.
