Richmond California Snake Situation: I have been finding poo in my detached un air conditioned garage for the last few weeks. At first I thought it was a rat. It's long and has a white tip on it and it's always beside my mini fridge on my work bench. I set out a mouse trap w peanut butter to kill said rat but this morning I found my trap still in tact with new poop beside it and my fridge again. Do snakes typically behave like this, use my fridge for heat or am I missing something? It comes and goes. There is a carport attached to kitchen wall one corner wa clos in for work shop.I put hen in there with 30 eggs to sit.,all eggs are gone. 2full jugs of water had punctured holes water leaked on floor I hear rattels when I go near wall. Old house is on pier and beam lots of cracks holes. No one will go near my house. Where do I get yello snake trap? Please help. I am elderly, disabledd,, have sm ss income. Any help is appreciated. thank you Jason

Hi, We live in Richmond CA (west of Oakland). There's a yellow rat snake that I have had to chase out of the chicken coop twice today. I don't want to have to kill it, but it's eating the eggs, and may have killed one of the young hens a few months back. Maybe not though since it didn't eat it. Is there a good way to discourage it from coming back? It's a good 80 miles from San Francisco, and maybe further to San Jose, so it's probably not real economical to have someone come remove it. Besides, we live in a very rural situation, and there are loads of snakes here. If you don't have a good suggestion, I'll have to tell my husband about it, and he will probably kill it. BTW, I grabbed it at one point, and it sure is a constrictor! Interesting! Barb

Hi... I cam e home to find that a snake had shed his skin in our backyard...the head of it was still in the hole in the ground. Wish I had taken a picture of that! But I gently picked it up and was amazed. the dog sniffed it once then jerked backwards like it scared her...she's 67# of austrailian shepard mix...hmmm. Anyway. it is an astounding 45" long. we are hoping its a gopher snake since we have tons of gophers. we live in Bodega Bay CA (70 miles north of SF) on the North American plate side (the Pacific plate is on the other side of the Bodega Bay). We have primarily adobe clay soils. Thanks for any help you can offer. We will take it to the UC Davis Marine Laboratory to see if our reserve manager knows what it is...we are marine biologist (husband too) but have scant knowledge of snakes. I did find a hole with 23 leathery snake eggs one day several years ago but that was on the Lab side of the bay...the other tectonic plate. We'd like to send this to the local school for the kids to learn from best to preserve this? We live in a moist coastal climate.
