It's a Bull snake, realtion to the pines and gophers. Can get fairly big (10ft) and tends to be a bluffer. Lots of hissing and closed mouth striking from some of them. Most calm down well though.

Post your pics on Livefoods or Captivebred and ask for Al Stotton, he will know.
I would say it is definitely a gopher pine or bull snake but not sure which
