I think this is a juvenile Northern Diamondback water snake, this is what the blotched water snakes look like in my area.

Wow awesome spotting, From what I hear these snakes are very rare, I am quite jealous of this spotting!

Oh yeah! He was a chunky snake, but looking in the area it is easy to see why finding rodents under every other board.

I guess I see how it could be a king then, it looks an awful like a western or "black" rat snake over here in ok but things look different in different states, It is a cool find looks nothing like the hoolbrooki over here.

Actually I have the strong feeling this is an african spurred tortoise, Geochelone sulcata.

And saying that they are more common in hotter places is kind of true but not exactly these snakes can be very abundant along with the eastern diamond back pygmy rattlesnake and massasaguas in cooler places and forests some of these species can't live in desert or hot climates.

I think this is the eastern king snake which is Lampropeltis getula, hoolbrooki would mean it is a speckled king snake

Cool find but this is a rat snake I was going to link the kentucky snake sight but the picture wasn't really good I will find another, if you look at a few pictures you might see it is a rat snake.
