Snake Removal Services
New Orleans, Louisiana Snakes are in every state of our country. you will at one time or more in your life run across them, whether in your garden, garage or even in your home.
The top three pictures to the side were sent to me by a client that took these in New Orleans, Louisiana at an oil well site, I thought it a very compelling advocacy of the common Rat snake and their benefits.
New Orleans, Louisiana Eastern and Western Rat snakes are one of my favorite snakes just because they are so fascinating. For one thing they don’t need the sun to metabolize their foods. this means that they don’t have to be out in the sun to digest their meals. they hang out in crawl spaces and even attics for months at a time where other snakes would need to come and go.
So its no wonder that I am called on most of my reptile calls to remove them.
Although typically a very dark almost black top with pasterns blended in the scales of the black snake and usually have a light underbelly, in youth black snake or rat snake patterns are more present and are most often confused with Copperhead.
Very territorial, the black snake or rat snake will kill , even consume any snake that would happen into there areas. As fierce hunters they can set up ambush in almost any place. they have great eye to boot. this is way it is very beneficial to allow their presence if at all possible.. “better a black snake than a poisonous snake farmers used to say” , it is actually true.
Although I love these amazing snakes, Black snake or rat snakes have no place in our homes.
