Just to add, as with anything venomous, be careful! People can be allergic to these, spiders, scorpions, and snakes just like people are allergic to bees, wasps, and ants. Sadly you'll never know if you are allergic until you are bitten or stung.

I had one almost 10 inches, but they can get to around 13.

Bullsnakes are awesome! I really like them.

Not a problem! By the way, I am an active member of the Oklahoma City Herpetological Society, Wildlife Section Chair of the Oklahoma Academy of Science, and volunteer with the Oklahoma Biological Survey. I also do a lot of work with the Nature Conservancy and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, and my animals are on display every year at the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo in Guthrie at the Lazy E Arena.

I can't figure out how to search a particular person or snake!

I would have to say Rough Earth Snake. There are very few other options it could be, being a small plain snake, with a small pointy head.

Correct! Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake.

That is a timber rattlesnake. From the looks of it, it's probably a zoo display.

Yes. I caught it this past April near Sequoyah State Park. I've seen a couple of varieties of these in Oklahoma, some with a black body, dark green body, and dark blue body, and with both orange and yellow legs. I agree the yellow legs are more common.
