At first, I thought banded water snake...but that’s a water moc, judging from the eyes set on the sides and the underbelly coloring. Tail isn’t all that stumpy.

Edit: looks like that’s a leaf and not the tail...it is stumpy.

My mom texted this morning that they killed another rattle bug at the house by the front door yesterday.

Man oh man. We’ve been at our SOT since March if this year and have yet to come across a rattle bug. I’ve been looking and I know they are around but I haven’t seen one yet. PS, I do carry extra drawers just in case I see one.
