dreawood Love his boldness. One reason we named him Caleb. His name means bold. We want him to be a bold witness for Christ but also a strong man for his family. This may make some squirm. I tho see strength and was proud Caleb caught this sucker with his bare hands. #boymom #blackratsnake #age10 1d

dreawood Just a part of normal #boymom life. Caleb (age 10) caught this 6 foot #blackratsnake in our neighbors yard. Without help. I of course had to have a turn handling him. Travis thinks I am nuts. He greatly fears all snakes ;) even harmless ones like this. Although if he did bite, it wouldn't feel nice. I try to teach the boys to be brave (but smart. No need to handle poisonous ones) with these sorts things. It's a good quality I think. #motherhood 1d
  •   tifftisch Um, no. :) 1d
  •   dulceknits I certainly don't like snakes and would never touch one. Caleb is so much like you. 1d
  •   moose913 Snakes I can handle and deal with but a spider .. ..especially a spider I lose sight of and can't see anymore ......freaks me out....lol 1d
  •   bridgetksimpson Ohmyholygosh. No. Way. There is a HUGE black snake somewhere in my neighborhood (we back up to woods) and ever since seeing him, I won't even go outside! I WISH I could be more like you! Wow! 1d

thrujenseyes anyone have any clue what this beautiful little #snake is? I thought it had to be a juvenile #gartersnake but I've never seen a pattern/color combo like this on one...but it's body head and eyes are typical of the garter. Maybe #juvenile #blackratsnake or juvenile #blackracer?! #idhelp #identification #snakes #herpid #herp #id 2d
  •   wiehled Gorgeous little guy! 2d
  •   thrujenseyes @andi954 bite your tongue!! I will not tell it you said that!! @wiehled isn't it!!?! 2d
  •   shore002 It's a black snake with different pigment of skin 2d
  •   b3ttywhite @thrujenseyes that is most definitely a black racer. He is growing out of his pattern I'd say a few more weeks and he will be all black. Another way of telling it's a racer is they are a little smarter and more "aware" they have awesome sight so they will be looking at you instead kinda past you like other snakes and they raise up to look around. THE MORE YOU KNOW. 2d
  •   kellys Jesus!!! Whhyyyyyy do you have to get so close?!! You're going to give me a heart attack 2d
  •   thrujenseyes @b3ttywhite thanks a million for the awesome info!!!! I thought that's what it might be and that he was growing out of those gorgeous markings. What a beautiful little snake!!! I've seen adults all my life but apparently never seen a juvenile. A year or two ago I stopped traffic to wrangle an enormous adult out of the road. I was in heals wrangling a snake. People were taking pics...quite a spectacle I made of myself. 2d
  •   thrujenseyes @kellys it's just a youngster...this guy will be enormous as an adult!!!! 2d
