Snakes enter an attic for warmth and food. Your friend probably has mice or rats in the attic. He may not see them because the snake is doing a good job of eating them. This could be a rat snake, which is a good climber. Once the rat or mice problem is addressed, the snakes will find somewhere else to go.

I agree with Judy -- it is a rat snake. :-) They eat ALOT so please don't delay in getting it re-homed somewhere with a good food supply or euthanizing it humanely.

this is a rat snake, and as such it is probably an asset to have around.

There are people who sell/buy rat snakes and they do come in handy on farms with grain feeding animals where rats/mice dwell.
You might try ridding this snake to such a place or advertise to sell it. It does have a useful place in the reptilian world.
