    we have caught 2 snakes this week in the bay at the fire house. Can you all ID both of them for me please. The top one was caught in a glue trap and I somehow got him free without injuries either of us.

    Top one looks to me to be a corn snake. But I’m not an expert. Bottom one maybe a milk snake?

    I think the first is a milk snake and the second is a prairie kingsnake.

    Both are King snakes, top is a Scarlet King. The bottom could be a Prairie King that has recently shed, usually they are browner. Both are good snakes and non poisones

    Lol u kiddin? :confused: ive seen a couple that go past 60" not killed by me tho. A 32" copperhead seems to be the stopping point on length that ive seen.
    Like dirtstalker said if I was to go looking for em I could find plenty in this area... not my thing tho.

    Perhaps suggest to the Captain it's time to retire the fire dog and obtain a fire cat. It could handle whatever is drawing them there.
