Um, this does NOT belong in the house, let alone the kitchen!
Yikes! I was in the house, and walked RIGHT PAST THIS CRITTER!!
As he silently twisted his body in 1 million different directions.
It was when I closed the half door that I saw him. I only closed the half door to keep the dogs out of the room as I had mopped it & wanted the floor to dry first.
Then I saw him. Um, you aren't supposed to be in here!
So what did I do?
Ran out to the RV, grabbed my cell phone, grabbed my camera, then went to stalk him. I really wanted to get pics to identify him. I knew it wasn't a rattler, but wanted to know if it was a sssssafe sssssssnake or not.
He ssssslithered under the freezzzzzzzzzer.
I came out to the RV & returned.
He was ssssssssssslithering up the wine rack.
Sssssso, I caught a couple of picssss.
Camera didn't want to focussss though.
Sssssso, I got the besssst I could get.
It's a Texas Rat Snake, but really, I'd be happier with it OUTSIDE!!!
It's nonvenomous, but ssssstill....
I'm not that scared of snakes, but sssssstill....
So I'm ssssstaying put in my RV :-p
