"We found these snakeskins in our basement, which means we have at least one snake down there. Maybe more! We think it is a black rat snake, but we are not sure. We also don't know if both skins are from the same snake or a different one. The one was wrapped around our curtain rod but I took it down, the other one was just lying flat. One measures 58" and the other 62". GROSS."
