I love your Zeke wants inside shadow story. Good lord, we watched horror movies all weekend (so I am starting to see things in the shadows). Is that a giant mouse in the doorway to the left?
Laf! That is only the top of the lamp, but I have rather robust mice, just not that tall. That is why I keep two large snakes beneath the house....one left me this. They are not the same kind, but the king snake must be a lady because there's a little one this year. My daughters-in-law hate them. I only hate the mice.

Hi, Min,
Devotee of straight photography as I am, my enthusiasm is totally absorbed by your image #1
It is absolutely engrossing and evocative of many memories of delightful such scenes accumulated during my lifetime!
Stay well and safe!
Dave no
I’m so glad you posted it!
I am so glad it evoked some memories. It was my intent when I got it to first rescue it from falling in, and then to recreate what my own childhood felt like so my children and grandchildren could know. The house is a form of time travel, a museum you can live casually in.

Just a point of info; that shed snakeskin has “keeled” scales, and thus is not from a king snake - which is of a family with smooth (un-keeled) scales. King snakes are nice, non-aggressive, easily tamed as pets, and feed heartily upon rodents as well as upon other snakes- including rattlers, copperheads, and small moccasins, against the toxic effects of the venoms of which they are totally immune!
Frank, you oughta like ‘em!

Might it be from the chicken snake?

Hi. Min,
If by “chicken snake” you mean one of the “rat snake” family that includes the black rat snake. Fox snake, corn snake, and yellow rat snake/ four-lined rat snake....then yes, it could be. I’m not aware of “chicken snake” being as common a vulgate name as, say, “chicken hawk”!

I've been told it is in that family. Yankee cousin called it a corn snake - the large snake who tends the north side and is what we in the south call a chicken snake. The king snake lives on the south side, and was tamed quite easily by the electrician who rewired the house. He keeps one for a pet at home but left me this one to help with the mice.

I would not touch the chicken snake, it was enormous and exotic looking. I have raked it off the porch with a broom though.

Hi, Min,
I hope you used a soft broom gently on your corn snake. They have some beautifully colored variations and also are non-aggressive and are easily tamed as pets. They are captive-bred and have been the single most popular pet snake species for almost 40 years!

Stay safe and well!
Dave
