Default Snake in the office

What kind of snake is this? We got to work this morning and this snake was caught in the door. This is a second door for outside access that is rarely used, and hasn't been used in a couple of weeks now. We saw it within 3 minutes of being here this morning, so we're sure it wasn't here yesterday.

My MIL sent me a pic of the same kind of snake in their office last week. Found it in one of the closets. I had no answers what kind it was.

We can only assume security might have came in that door last night. Maybe the snake was laying on top of the door and fell down then got slammed inn the door. It was dead when we found it, but it was still soft and flexible. I also discovered I'm working with some girly men that are scared of all snakes, even though I told them I was confident it wasn't venomous. :-)

Good thing it did not fall on the security guys head when falling, or this would be a "there is poop in the office" thread....

One of the guys here claims it is a "Dusty pygmy Rattlesnake". What do you think?
