Monday update

This afternoon when we went to the barn, we found a snake. There is a resident snake in the barn, a king snake whom my girls have named Pharoah. He's a good guy snake, working to keep poisonous snakes as well as rodents out of the barn. We haven't seen him on the days we have our camera, though. This little guy was a baby. He was only about 8 inches long and was dead when we discovered him.

We tried to identify him according to pictures on the internet, but it is difficult since many juvenile snakes look quite different from their adult counterparts. He's not a water moccasin (common around here). He's not a copperhead. After taking pictures, we properly disposed of him.
