That’s not a snake! That’s a snakes shed, thought you could trick me!
Seriously though, it is super hard to identify a snake by just the shed. Maybe if we had better pics of the head scales and any pattern, (which I can’t see from those pics) we might have a chance, a slim one!
Just for fun I am going to guess corn snake, judging by the smallish uniform scale shed, it also looks like they could be keeled scales to me, but all this is just a guess.
i wish it was a corn snake but we live in the country so we think its a copper head or a rat snake or a chicken snake but it is fresh and it scared the honk out of me
I’d personally lean more towards a rat snake or chicken head snake based on how the scale pattern looks. It’s tough to tell from the lighting, but especially if the color is more of a grey and darker near the head.
If the color is more orange or beige with bands, that’s more of a copperhead pattern for sure. The scale pattern would be slightly closer knit and a little more fishnet looking than oval from what I’ve seen
thank you that helped a lot im so glad it’s not a copper because I run around outside and I’m not finna go to the hospital but now I have to have a conversation with my chickens to let them know to STOP LAYING YOUR EGGS IN RANDOM PLACES THE SNAKES WILL EAT THEM
Do to the size and what I can see of the color, it could be just a common black snake.
It would help to know where you live. Based on the size of the scales and belly scales I’m going to guess it’s some sort of a pituophis. Bull snake, fox snake, pine snake, etc.
I would guess a black rat snake also
