Bull Snake in yard (how I know not a rattler)

This is a bull snake - very much like a rattle snake  -check out this video to see the difference -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFcQSA3bgvk
(2 minutes long)

However, I took this photo last summer walking the dog before I hurt my foot and can't walk out in that area anymore.  But this morning it didn't seem to matter - there was a 3 foot bull snake in my front yard on the front walkway - right where I garden - we have had such a drought that they are coming close to homes and we have gophers: food!


Three feet long with tongue

Hissing at me as I see

Too close for comfort.

Honestly - I am going to be hesitant out in my yard and garden for awhile!  At least I always have at least 1 crutch with me.
