Josh-are you able to suggest an ID? For some reason I am not able to change it but others can. When I change the name it shows that it is saved but then when I click out it changes back.

My vote is for a juvenile Texas rat snake.

Do you think it's a king snake, Lisa? And thanks for your help.

I have edited the common name to reflect the correct ID for you. Nice spotting. I love kingsnakes!

No other pictures. A friend saw it while she was on her walk. It won't let me change the id for some reason.

Not a kingsnake. Some kind of ratsnake.

Not quite sure this is a kingsnake - they don't look like this from your part of Texas. Do you have any other photos? How long was it?
