    Looks like a Rat Snake but need better pics of head. Google Rat Snake and compare. If dead, open mouth and see if it is Cottonmouth.

    It does not appear to be a Coral, Rattle, or Copperhead, which are the other most common venomous snakes in Texas.

    Generally ...

    Round eyes - nonvenomous
    Slant eyes - venomous



    With that said ... looks like the new boot/belt kind to me ...

    I've always gone by the head.


    Has a head....kill it.


    No head.....shoot it one more time just to be sure.
