Pig food....I like that solutionYep - definitely a big ol' rat snake! Couple years ago I had a big one like that - possibly the same one because I relocated it.
I found a shed skin a week ago when I was mowing so I've been on the lookout. I didn't catch him this time. Silly me - I thought he'd be moving a little slower since he was carrying a load. But, he turned around and slipped out a low spot under the barn wall. He needs to take care of the rats and leave the eggs alone - but since I know he won't...… the next time I see him he'll turn into pig food!
