I am not worried about the name of this snake but I smelled something different around where I keep the dog food. It is what I called a wild smell. I found some small 1 inch of Poop on the rug under the dog food container and couldn't figure who might of done that? I ask Hubby he agrees it wasn't a mouse. I ask him if he could pull out the refrigerator and he obliged. Nothing to see Jim went in the other room I screamed and a foot of this snake was crawling from under my refrig. Well my grandson likes snakes so as I am standing on a chair I called and said I have a snake in my kitchen. After some searching the area under my dishwasher and cabinets he came out with this snake. No I didn't sleep very well was on the look out for another one. I hope this is the end of the story.
Take care and watch where you walk
