Found this in a valve box a few years ago. I tried to get them out then just went in with my hands, no bites

I remember when I was either in kentucky or missouri for the Army, alot of the open training fields have cement bunkers buried in the ground so that during a tornado the soldiers could climb into them. One time when the alarms went off we openned the lid and their must have been half dozen snakes about 6 feet long. The guys jumped right in without hesitation, I decided to wait until the last minute. Luckily the debris never started flying close enough and I didn't have to climb into the snake pit

Speaking of manifold tees, do any of you guys know anything about black abs plastic manifold tees? I dug up two this year at two different locations that the plastic had eroded from the inside out on the 90 bend.
