Black Snakes & Rebalancing

Two six-foot-long black snakes chased my son Carlton (12) out of our chicken house one day last week. A third snake greeted him as he stepped into the "feed room" where we keep the donkeys' grain. It's dark in the feed room and he didn't see this fat, black monster coiled up right beside the grain bin until it raised its head into a striking position. Those of you who grew up in the south are likely familiar with the black rat snake. According to the Davidson College Herpetology website, the black rat snake (Elaphe obsoleta) is the most common large snake encountered by people in North Carolina. These non-venomous constrictors prey on mice, rats, birds and their eggs, including those of chickens. They're excellent climbers and can climb trees or walls simply by holding onto the rough surface with their belly scales. They are commonly found in and around human dwellings and survive well in established neighborhoods, sometimes turning up in chimneys, attics, garages and basements.

My sons are accustomed to seeing snakes in our chicken house as they do their daily chores of feeding the animals and collecting the eggs. With freshly laid eggs and a huge family of mice there for the picking, you can't reasonably expect a hungry snake to stay away, can you? But seeing three snakes in one day and especially encountering one up close in the dark must have pushed Carlton a bit far.
