Hubby found a snake skin lying just like this in the yard.
About three inches of the tail end broke off when we picked it up. Still pretty long! We think it was a Gray Rat Snake (like the one I wrote about before, here and here). It was in the vicinity of the duck pen.
It smelled really... snakey.
Serpeniferous? No, that's not right. Serpenoleic? Serpenodoracious?
