I asked “What breed is this snake?” The pic I used was not clear. I have better pics now if anyone can update. ?

The flat sides of the body indicate that it is one of the rat snakes. There are several with similar patterns. It could be a black rat snake, as some have suggested. Knowing the general location might help.

I would say that’s a Baby black rat snake

Looks like some sort of ratsnake or gopher snake or even the prairie kingsnake. These snakes are all close relatives of each other. Non-venomous. Ratlesnakes are short and chubby and they have a tail that ends bluntly into a rattle.

Saw a tree branch just like this. sorry, you must get a decent photo of the head and overall snake for any proper ID, added plus is showing eye pupils tail areas.

Based on watching nature shows, I would either guess a type of rattlesnake or a Burmese python.
Google search for images of the skins of these two kinds of snakes to see if it helps you determine which one it is.
You could also ask animal control in your area. They might know what it is based on snakes that are common in your area.
