I am relocating to CT and while I was walking around a potential home, I almost stepped on an northern brownsnake in some leaves. He was just over a foot long, so nothing crazy big. Its amazing how well snakes have evolved to blend in with their surroundings.

Top on is nope, no freaking way I pick that rattlesnake looking thing up. Looks way to much like a rattlesnake for me to touch unless the head is detached. Sometimes they break off their rattles.

They may be bull snakes they have similar patterns.

I won't even go near snake skin that has been shed

It was not a rattlesnake. However, I thought it might have been a Diamondback Water Snake..Just not sure

He shouldn't have been hiding where me or a kid might step on him. Out of the Barn out out out. He seemed to bump his head on a lead rock when I was removing him from the barn.

Pygmy Rattlesnake for those not familiar with the tiny little shits.
