Rat Snake on Tree Trunk

"The Rat Snake was a beauty, at least 6 feet (probably more along the lines of 7 or so if she had not been clinging to that tree for dear life) and freshly shed and so shiny I wanted to touch her. She was very observant of me, but she did not show any defensive posturing and I was able to get within 4 foot or so of her. As soon as I walked away, she turned and made her way back up to the top of the tree."

  1. Magnificent snake. Black rats remain among my favorites, both in nature and as pets, despite having had experience of all sorts of exotic snakes over the years.
