So far, nothing since then. Maybe it ran away from the inserted poisons

It might have been a xxx but now it can be a snake that went
in to eat the xxx.


I have seen gopher snakes like this one from a couple years ago:

I doubt an IR activated camera would catch a coldblooded snake.

You'd be wrong about the IR. A branch waving will trigger them, and run your battery down if you're not careful.

I dunno about snakes, I've never had one show up on the camera. But all sorts of cold objects will trigger it, if big enough.
