We finally found the alleged owner of the previously posted skin. Last night my husband and neighbor were trying to get something out of our backyard shed. To their surprise when they opened the door all curled up on the gravel floor was a 5′ Rat Snake. He was non aggressive and put up with our shenanigans/curiosity to get a closer look. I even had time to get out my camera and take a few pictures. Look if you wish to see our new backyard reptile friend!
