Last year I was put into contact with you for help in identifying a rather large Black Snake I had named Clyde. I live on a farm north of St. Joseph, Missouri. (Which is an hour north of Kansas City.)
I was hoping you’d be willing to help me again. I have photos of 2 different snakes.
Just hoping they’re both non-venomous. Thanks so much for your time,
What Are These Snakes?
-This is not a pop quiz, any kind of research is encouraged and I hope you will engage with other commenters to try to figure these snakes out. I will eventually chime in with my thoughts.
-Assume I know what kind of snake is in the picture. I run these posts because they are outreach opportunities. Please don’t send me private e-mails with your guesses, include them below.
-Remember, the person that sent me the picture is probably reading your comments. Although it is frustrating to know that many of these snakes have been killed, these people do want to learn more about them. More snake knowledge will lead to fewer snakes being killed. Don’t hate, educate.
