Probably a rat snake, or water snake. Too slender for a cottonmouth
When in doubt, kill it.

Looks like a corn snake


Foolish people cry about this smallest things. Don't believe me, ask the one always crying when things don't go their way.

It wasn't venomous, I know that for sure, so no point in killing it.

Western rat snake. Keep it away from the chicken coop!

Western Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus) one of the most beneficial snakes we have in Texas. Glad you did not kill it, so many people kill good snakes because of ignorance.

^^^^^ This. We are covered up with them in Deep East Texas. Pattern and color (darkness) varies widely.

I didn't think the 'gray' made into Texas (if that is where the photo was taken)?

Parts of far Eastern Louisiana...for sure. But who knows.

Rat snakes vary widely in pattern and coloration.

When in doubt, stand still until it moves on or slowly move away.

In Deep East Texas (where I live) you will never hear it called a 'rat snake'....ALWAYS a 'chicken snake' (Colloquially)....just for the reason you cite.
