Default have visitors...Mr and Mrs No Shoulders

So our garage fridge didn't seem real cold today. Luckily we caught it in time. Moved everything to a different fridge, really didn't lose anything. probably good we cleaned it out anyway.

So I pulled it out to vacuum behind it and improve air flow. When I did, I saw something odd. Uh oh...snake! Thought it was a copperhead so I grabbed a light. I knew right away, milk snake. Went to grab it and it went two ways. TWO SNAKES! One crawled between the drywall in between the garage and the house. The one I had ahold of went under the fridge and slipped out of my grip. I would guess they were mating. A few minutes later the one from the fridge slipped out and into the wall, again slipping my grip.

Just checked a few minutes ago, one is back out.




Gonna just leave them go. I have mice, therefore I have snakes. And they're good snakes. Completely harmless, unless my wife sees him and he may be in trouble!

She was pretty cool with the fact actually. As long as they stay in the garage.

Cool that you like the "good" snakes. I don't see milk snakes in my part of Florida. Pretty snake!

Good things to have. We had a detached garage in TN for the truck, the duck boat, decoys and junk. A very large king snake decided she liked it, and moved in. Always startled me when we crossed paths, but she was always welcome. My wife thought she was neat.

That surprises me. Given your proximity to Australia I'd expect a bunch of poisonous stuff

Previous old farmhouse we had black snakes in the attic and earthen basement. They did keep the mice down.

Found this little ringneck hatchling yesterday under a brick paver. Startled me at first but he was pretty cool.
