Alabama, how can I post picture from my iphone
Expert:  Joan replied 5 months ago.

I do not think you can post from a Phone, only from a computer. Give me a few mins to see if I can identify the snake. Was it heavy bodied or thin? How long?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Heavy bodied about 3 ft

This snake sounds like it could have been a Rattle snake. I would love to have the picture to positively identified it, but from the description given with heavy body, dark color and daimonds, I would take an educated guess that is the snake you had seen.

It was not a rattler. How can I send a picture on computer?
Expert:  Joan replied 5 months ago.

Use the paper clip icon in the tool bar and send from a file on the computer.
