    Doesn't surprise me a bit! It's a darn good thing they're not venomous!

    The one you had was the color of the one I dispatched this morning at my DDs shed. Hey, 6:30AM & she's calling me to come get this snake! One's I've had here are the black(er) ones. They have a pattern, more seen when young but turn almost total black with age...slight pattern can be seen...if dead and stopped :D They do emit a very musky odor as being chopped.

    Guess it lingers as the hens are totally upset. OR -- heaven forbid, there's a friend left behind...:rolleyes: Trust me, I LOOK!

    It is kinda one of those "sceince things"....the gray rat snake is only gray and visiable pattern of grays, when they are young....everytime it sheds, the color and patterns change and continue changing thru its lifetime....when they get fully mature they are as FEM's pic....3-5' length is difficult to tell them from a racer....and most don't wish to look long enough to distinguish between the 2.....:)
