What about the Kingsnake

I just read another article about Virginia snakes that are black and it mentioned the Kingsnake. Not mentioned here.

Snake in mother-in-law's kitchen

It might have been two feet long hiding behind the electric mixer when my mother-in-law called and screamed for me to come and get the snake! That was a first! What was he looking for? It was hot outside and on the countertop, the temperature was cool. Also some food that got left out...well the black snake as I called it (but I know better now that I read the above story), was put out two blocks from my mother-in-law. No, I wasn't going to kill it..so, does that mean the snake will find its way back to the house?

Nearly all of Virginia's native snakes will shake their tail when they feel threatened.
