These were taken in August.
I have 2 small birdhouses on my front porch. The only thing that has ever lived in them were a couple of Cuban Brown Anoles (lizard), but one morning out of the corner of my eye I spotted a head…..
But, as you can see, it is not an Anole, it’s a young Red Rat Snake. My front porch has become very popular with snakes. So far, I have had 2 Yellow Rat Snakes on it.
Even though this little guy was very pretty, and I’ve read they make very good pets, we decided to relocate him so he wouldn’t grow up and eat my birds or the baby bunnies that live here.
The birdhouse was falling apart so I removed the roof and let him take his time leaving.
There will be plenty of food and places to hide in the grove. I’ll be watching for him as we drive in and out.
