Your right on the females being larger then males the word for it is sexual Dimorphism which is common in most snakes especially Garter snakes and no they are not venomous but there are some minors cases of people being bitten and they got staph infections because they don’t think to clean but most non venomous snakes be the potential of spreading bad infections and house centipedes Are amazing ???Snakes, one of my big loves besides fish! I do not own any, as I still live with my parents and they have a strict no reptiles rule. Oh well, someday!
Like @2211Nighthawk said, it's likely a female. I believe female snakes are always bigger than males. (There may be a few obscure exceptions.) The good news for those afraid of snakes is that unless you step on one or otherwise intentionally agitate it, they won't hurt you. You're a giant predator to them, and biting you leaves them vulnerable. So if you see one, just leave it be and you'll be just fine. Plus they help control rodent populations.
As for spiders, I'm not a big fan of them but I respect their importance. I always catch them and relocate them outside. I'm still a soft heart though, I almost cried the other week because I squished one when trying to catch it. The only creatures I feel no remorse killing are ticks, mosquitos, and house centipeds.
I'm certainly not going to do a taste test!and .... spiders taste like shrimp! What's not to like?
Corn snakes are beautiful!Such a beautiful snake!! It would be cool if snakes were around here, as it stands people have panic attacks if a pet corn snake is seen on the loose....
I've always kinda liked spiders too.... I guess I'll show myself out!
If we all leave, who you gonna talk to lol!OK OK, I can understand not liking snakes. But, however, if you say you don't mind spiders...you can just go ahead and leave, cause we people of Fishlore don't like superhumans that aren't afraid of anything.
You know they say we eat at least 10 spiders in our sleep in our life time and there’s at least 1 in every car. Happy dreamsOK OK, I can understand not liking snakes.

Copperheads prefer to eat locust. I’m sorry her dog was bitten, although snakes tend to strike when they feel threatened, and dogs are pretty nosy. So just tell your daughter that she may want to contact the local herpetology group- If she sees the snakes, most groups have somebody who will come out and re-locate snakes for freeMy daughter lives just outside of Richmond Va.and she has a problem with copperheads if fact one bit her dog 2 weeks ago.
