Re: Large Snake Skin in old shed - What kind of Snake ?

I can't tell what it is by looking at the skin. (I'm not experienced enough.) In what part of the country are you? Just going by size, in my area it is likely to be a rat snake.

If it's a rat snake or kingsnake it is not dangerous to dogs unless a dog scares it, gets bitten & that bite subsequently gets infected. We have rat snakes all over our property and I've never worried about them being a danger to my dogs. Spiders are much more dangerous and ticks infinitely so.
