Leave it to a chick to do the dangerous work, while fat guys and ties stand there and watch.

Now they can boil 'em up in the water from the Sweetie Pies bathroom.

Good thing Tom Bishop wasn't around. He would have emptied his pistol on it.

Looks like a Bull snake to me! They didn't kill it, did they?
Bull snakes are completely harmless and beautiful.

3:22 Somebody already told you it was a black one.

Could be a bullsnake, but the coloring is a bit unusual, rather dark for a bullsnake. Definitely non venomous. It's not as big as the last picture gives the illusion, the eye wants to compare it to the man in the background, but still a healthy snake.

A snake on Barry's blog? Someone is going to jail or paying a fine.

Is that the snakehunter, Brock Smith, in the 1st pic?

Probably a Boa or Python of some kind...and bet ya it got loose from the pet store a few blocks over and down. Won't be the first creature to get loose from there!
Who knows for sure what kind it was? Dang...... maybe it fell from a plane????

Isn't the guy in the blue shirt Brock Smith? Guess you two must have been out for lunch, huh?

Anonymous said...

Looks like Brock was using his knowledge from when he earned his his snake wrangler patch.

Were the lawyers in the picture attracted to the snake, or was the snake attracted to the lawyers? Or was it a family reunion?

Can you imagine sitting on the bench and have this thing crawl out by your feet? Oh my!

Would someone please just say what kind of snake it was?

Barry, just think, that snake was there to gobble up the crabs that were there several months ago.

Folks are really getting bored around the square....

..especially lawyers.

Sad.

My Guess:
Black Rat Snake

Of course, I relied on a government database, so grain o' salt and all that.

Boy, it is easy to tell most posters are city folks - don't know a snake from a snail....

...the "smart" (?).... lawyers in Decatur don't have much to do when a snake is "excitement"........

About all the damage that snake will do is make you hurt yourself when you see him.
Maybe Sweeties has rats.
