Got this in an e-mail. Hopefully it's not an old one.

I'll wager that the snake chased the rodent up in there and then got zapped.... 220 ....221 ... whatever it took!

With the meter being out of the socket there would be no power in the box. Or at least there should be none.

I bet they pulled the meter so they could get the snake out:)

I don't think that snake is dead.

I thought he looked dead. Fresh, but dead. I hope he was dead, snakes are scary.

Dang, I don't think that snake could have gotten itself stuffed in there anymore than it did. We had a big snake in our bird house at our old house. I was much younger and my mom called the orkan man. You shoulda seen that sucker fly out of there when he sprayed something in there :laugh: If we were to have a huge snake in our bird house today I'd just pump some 00 buck into the bird house. Problem solved.

That looks to me like the rodent and snake are both most assuredly toast. If I had to wager, I would bet the snake crawled up and in and got "comfy". Probably smelled the rodent and waited for it to return to the nest. Rodent came into that switch box and the snake struck. Either the strike or the rodents struggles hit live power and that was all she wrote. Yes, they would have pulled the meter to remove the snake.

Can't say as I have ever seen a snake in a meter box - usually I see tarantulas, scorpions, fire ants.

The way the snake is lying over this box, it's body so relaxed it is almost flat. I would say it is dead.

That looks like a very large dead Texas Rat snake. I caught a large one last summer that my son kept in an aquarium in the garage for a month or two before I finally let it go. It ate a mouse a week. The one pictured though dwarfs my 4 1/2 footer. I also caught two Coral snakes and an armadillo. We couldn't get the coral snakes to eat so after a few weeks I would let them go.
