Black rat snakes are really cool snakes. They get pretty big, and they are great climbers.

Several years ago, my wife called me and said she saw the end of snake tail by the side door of our house. She has the habit of leaving the door wide open while letting the dog out to do her business. She said it disappeared, and swore up and down it went in the house. When I got home, she was standing out in the yard and refused to go inside. I spent a good 45 minutes turning over furniture, and looking under beds. I did not find a snake. I finally assured her it was OK to come in.

The next evening, I heard a blood curdling scream, and I thought we had an intruder in the house. I rushed in to save my wife, and on the dining room floor was about a 4 foot long black rat snake.

To the amazement of my wife, I picked him up by the tail and carried him outside. He did not even try to bite. He did keep a worried eye on my wife though.

He seemed to understand he was going outside.
