We found a bull snake in our garage once. Not the greatest feeling.

I would have been sick. Snakes are my biggest fear. I can hardly look at your pics. I can't believe your kids are so close to it!!!

Ooops, I should’ve mentioned it was dead in theses pictures. My husband was quite the hero and killed it! If you look close at the picture you can see that it’s a little flat up by the head. Look how cautious the kids are even though they know its dead! Hehehe!

Yes, that is a bull snake. They are actually good to have around. They won't hurt you. They eat mice and rattle snakes. We found a dead rattle snake on our road the other day and it freaked me out that they are that close to our house! Eeek!

Your children are so cute! Happy Birthday to your twins! What amazing pictures you take too!

Toni, we thought that it was a rattle snake at first because it was shaking real bad and making a “rattling” sound but it was laying on some trash, that must have been the noise. It also was trying to strike a lot too. My guess is that it was after the baby kittens, since I read online that they like to eat small rabbits and other small animals.
I feel kinda bad about killing it now since it’s a “good” snake but it sure was scary!
