It was 4ft + pale narrow head & chevron patterns in dk color from neck down to tip of rose colored tail! Hope that it's not a constrictor, as we have 2 loving cats that like the outdrs. They are pretty tough customers...but I still worry. Thx so much. I am "Carloe Shazzad" on facebook if you can answer me there and I will send you the $...just give me address. Also, will wait here awhile.

seems I lost another page...had written to you hrs ago, something bumped me outa here...my knuckle or a page I had started with. But I did rewrite and embellish some more. Hopefully, you will find that Joan. Thankyou! I do have an old acquaintence in town who likes his collections of reptiles - gets involved w/ schools, etc. he may be interested esp if I know what kind this one is.
I was out front, talking w/ my 2 cats while transplanting. Then I noticed they disappeared. I had a new "audience". It seemed very relaxed w/ its last foot of the tail flattened, rose coloring w/ chevron pattern all the way to tip. Tell me plz...do you think this thing might take take down a cat? 8lb alert Himalayan and 10lb sleepy hunk-a-boola. I'll just keep them in.
Veterinarian: Joan, Vet Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi,

Please give me a few minutes to research and see if I can identify the snake you had seen.

not "a page I had started with"...but an offer to get free week (I'm not certain I'll do). Laptop seems to have a mind in it's own wittle world at times. Probably will keep tryin' on here, rather than calling. Thx for the feedback. Pale tan head with lots of hissing & fuss once I had the grabbers on it. I've been rounding up the cattle from off of the Rez all summer, and had a total of only 3 wild horses to spoil - mineral licks & water, some free hay...thank the good Lord, nuggets, they didn't catch on what the apples and carrots ~ or nuggets were this time around. Indian buddies finally came & got the cattle.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, that's not the same...wonder if there are differences in male and female. Quite alot of difference tho. V shape - dark gray or brown repeating down the back from neck to tip of tail. Pale yellow to pale green under the chevron markings. Light underbelly. Planned on hauling it out alot farther - to the tank...but it was almost out of the 4' tall garbage basket.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Turned and ran like a squeeling teenager. I did think from the name that was going to be it. Could be a snake somebody released that's not from around here maybe.
Veterinarian: Joan, Vet Technician replied 2 years ago

let me get another picture for you. there are so many snakes in the area, but wanted to rule that one out because that one is a constrictor. It was a Rosey Boa and could injure the cats.

nope...not the wandgarter neither...yawning out load. Thankyou...tomorrow then.
Veterinarian: Joan, Vet Technician replied 2 years ago

this is tough without having a picture. Have to try to find one snake out of many to match and many look like your description. I can tell you most snakes are constrictors and the size of the snake will determine whether the cats are in danger. If not a constrictor the snake would be venomous. Right now I am looking at non venomous with your description.

Chevron is a "V", not stripes or diamonds or blotches. From large down to very small at the tail. I really didn't think the coloring (rainbow colors) was much like others. Not red or blue, green or purple...but pastel coloring . check back here how I've described, plz. thankyou (###) ###-####
Veterinarian: Joan, Vet Technician replied 2 years ago

I am afraid I will have to opt out. I have researched snakes and cannot find any that meets the description. Maybe someone else can assist.

I wonder if the the fellow who appeared on here the 2nd day I was on here, from Prescott collects them or is interested in a more rare (?) species. He was holding the grabber hunting one in the rocky terrain in his photo. (I'm afraid I "x'd" out.) If you see this, get back on, plz. Have you ever seen one w/ this description? Or if Veterinarian can give me an idea - someone may be interested in finding this one. May not have much time left in the free week. To many challenges to some days, for me ~ free time to use pc is a premium.
Thx a bunch Joan, for your time and what you did tell me. Haven't seen it again...not sure it left, though. Would really like it out of here.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hello, are you here tonight? I'm Carole & just wanted to meet you and say it is more accurate to describe as dark V pattern, from behind the pale head and neck, then what I kept saying before. So...not chevron, but shape of V getting smaller, all the way down to tip of tail.
