Black racer or black rat snake?


Ust came across this in my backyard and am pretty sure I saw the same one in my front yard yesterday being chased by a bird. I am thinking black rat snake because it looks a little misshaped and thats what they do when they are cornered from what I read.

Agreed, probably a black rat snake. Racers tend to freak out and scoot away in a hurry. Visually it is hard to tell the difference between the two.

You don't consider it a pest, do ya? It probably is the best bug control in your yard.

No. I left it alone and even helped it get away from a pissed off bird. Lol. It went under my shed and disappeared.
