Looks like a Texas Rat Snake. Location might help but TRS is probably the most common snake in TX.

Does anyone else see a Timber Rattler resemblance other than me? Very well could be a rat snake, but I think it could be a timber rattler…those would not be common in Frisco though. Maybe hognose

Yes. First thing Id did was look for rattle.
My rat snakes big and small dont look like that…by any stretch of coloration or pattern.

I thought hog-nose also but looking at the length it appears to be, I have to say rat snake.

I am in the hognose camp. Pattern is too broken for me to say rat snake.
