Rat Snake captured; befriended

David captured a lovely black rat snake in the yard! Figured we'd try to keep it around for a while and see how it fares in captivity.  She may have been living in the empty field beside us that David went and cut.  So it's only fair to give her some free meals, right? ;)

Here she is upon initial capture.

She now has a home set up she seems happy in so far.  She has even taken his first meal in captivity.  We will see how she does over the next few weeks!

It's a girl! We know this because she laid eggs. Wow! I tried to incubate them but wasn't successful, due to not quite being prepared for that yet! But.. it's definitely a *she*...
