A couple of years ago Nick and Meghan Futrell found a small rat snake in the firewood pile next to our garage. For some reason they named him/her Carlos and since then ever time we see a snake we call him Carlos or son of Carlos. Mostly they have been small ones, maybe a foot long. Sometimes I find dead ones that must have been taken by birds and then dropped when Sam wonders around the garage. Well I am happy to report that Carlos is now very full grown as witnessed by this ~ 5 foot long skin I found by the generator. That is a yard stick in the photo!
