Snake identification

Anyone know what type of snake this is? Found it by our door and it was served an eviction notice.

It looks like one that hung around my place in northern AZ. Some said it was a Bull Snake, others said Gopher Snake. That's as close as I can get. The only ones I worried about had rattles on their tail.

It doesn't rattle but I don't have anything inside here to feed it so away it goes.

I just looked this up and I believe you hit the nail on the head. Both you and Glenn and Kathy are right it looks like a bull snake. I appreciate the help from you both.

I don't have any Bulls so not sure why it was hanging around

Have you been 'snorting' and 'pawing' at the ground lately

I was on 2.5 acres when I had my snake. I just let him fend for himself. I would see him out and around a couple times a week. He was hanging around the front door the day the movers loaded for our move.

Baby Bull (AKA gopher) snake. Harmless but eats rodents - let it go forth and help with pest control!

I used to have a pet garter snake that I saw when I cut the lawn. He had had a run in with a lawn mower earlier in his life it looked like so I called him Stubby due to his shortened tail. Alas, Stubby didn't listen when I told him to sun on the rocks not in the road. After that he was Squishy!

Looks like it's in a Home Depot bucket.

Look at the size of this snake (comparing to the bucket). I would bet on a rat in this fight

You did not say what STATE as a location if very HELPFUL.
So click on a photo to enlarge for a better ID of the snake in question. Most Snakes are good to have around as they eat mice and Mouses as well as other rodents that can find their way into your RV. Most snakes will avoid people and others. If eaten, you will find them much like chicken. But if I were to guess I would say a juvenile bull snake, which is wonderful for keeping down the frog population. So you must live close to a lake say within 100-yards?

As for rattle snake NO, but the thing to know a baby is just as deadly as an adult, rattle snake.
