Are Black rat snakes good for a garden?
I almost ran into two black rat snakes while walking in the woods near my gardens.
I at first thought they were rattlers as one vibrated its tail at me. Thank heavens they were not!
Are they beneficial to the garden or a pest?
Also, does anyone know if they like to sun themselves near ponds or if they will try to eat my fish? I read they like to eat frogs.
Thanks in advance!
Here is a pic of the smaller one.
