The wife showed me this from Facebook and asked if it was a rattle snake. I'm no expert but it looks more like a bull snake to me.

I open those type of boxes at work. I’d hurt myself trying to get away if I found a snake in one. That’s one large snake!

Bull.

Definitely Bull snake.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Opened up a disconnect on one of my wells and had about a 4 ft Coachwhip in it, them snakes are born with a bad attitude! When I see a fuse down for no reason and there's nothing laying around the pole, you can bet something got into the disconnect.

Looks like a mouse of rat nest in the lower right hand corner. I'm sure that is what the Bull was after.

Man you aint kiddin'!

I've got quite a few of them at my place and a couple are easily 6' or little better. They stand their ground even when I'm in the side by side.
Had one takin' a swim in the tank one day and I decided to jack with him a little and try and not let him come out. Trust me when I say after about 30 seconds of me doing it he did come out and right after my azz.
I am pretty sure I turned in 40 time very near what I ran in HS...…….maybe a tad better. SMDH

Thankfully I don’t deal with snakes in my boxes often, but mice, lizards and geckos are often the reason for a fried motherboard.


See y’all around the campfire.
