Well, well well. I was outside today and I was cleaning up/ picking up sticks so I could mow. I lifted something up and there it was. A black snake with yellow stripes around its body. I love snakes but can't have them cause my mom, but it was about 2-3ft. I took it next door to see if they wanted it, since they have so many. And guesss what. They took it in and gave it a home and thanked me for not killing it. I bet you are wondering where this is going. Well as you should know, horse are terrified of snakes.
P.s I live in the south, so do you know what kind it was. I know it was not poisnous. Sorry I did not get a pic of it. I could not bring it in the house. I kinda went in a state of shock. Not scared just, wow I found a snake, now what.

Was the yellow markings rings around or stripes on the
black snake?

If it was stripes it really sounds like a ribbon or garter snake.

Well I did alot of research to see if more of them would be around and all. Guess what? It was just a western king snake . It was glossy black with bright yellow bands around its body. I would have loved to keep it, but can't cause my mom is terrified of them , but I can see it when ever, it is just right next door, outside in a nice good home. :o
