Identifying a Snake

My buddy had this coming out of his attic. We are just curious what it is and the best way to keep them away.

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.
