    Pretty sure that's a leucistic Texas rat snake. You might want to know that's not really a "smile" but I suppose you could consider it to be a "come hither" look?

    Here's a past thread: (Note that the friendly & calm ones aren't going to be "smiling" at you, so be careful what you wish for. It's also not a yawn!)

    That's one of the few US rat snakes I've never got around to keeping- their reputation varies a lot- probably improving with more captive-breeding. Wild TX rat snakes can be feisty. But on the plus side, it's easy to check inside their mouths.

    I hear ya! Corn snakes make wonderful almost always-calm pets, & also stay a more modest size too. But for those who crave some excitement, there are options.

    Many US rat snakes got a bad reputation when pet stores tried selling wild-caught specimens (many years back) & sadly, most do NOT deserve that reputation now. But many TX leucy-rat snakes still do, from what I've read? Some US rat snakes have always been calm too- like Baird's or Trans Pecos- you'd like them.

    I had a Trans Pecos rat snake years ago .... very , very cute .. but so nervous and reclusive - just didnít cut it as a display snake
