Baby bullsnake

Found him coiled up outside Ian’s door when I came up for my evening shower.

Mature bullsnakes are docile as can be but babies, being less the masters of their world, can get salty when scared.


Still don’t have any venom, though.

    Salty or no, it will help you with the rodent infestation issue so tolerate them as best you can, eh?

    Oh, yeah. Bullsnakes are welcome anywhere except indoors.

    I would let them in, if it wasn’t for the wife and MIL, but then, I’ve always been the reptile kid (now at 72). Caught a medium large bull snake yesterday, mid day, in the chicken house. The chickens are safe, but not the eggs. I’m willing to trade eggs for rodent control, plus, Bull snakes taught my dogs to leave all (rattlers) snakes alone. Relocated him a hundred yards west to the garden.

    When I was a kid, it was common for North Queenslanders to have a carpet snake or a scrub python sleeping in the rafters, not so much now. Sure keeps the rodent population away, and if the littlies misbehaved, they were warned that “Fred” the snake found naughty children very tasty!

To the stake with the heretic!
