This fellow fell out of my truck door as I opened it. I caught him and hoped he would be a rat snake based on the round pupils, but the head is too similar to his 7ft long cousin I already had a run in with. Can you identify?
Can you tell what kind of snake this is?
What Are These Snakes?
-This is not a pop quiz, any kind of research is encouraged and I hope you will engage with other commenters to try to figure these snakes out. I will eventually chime in with my thoughts.
-Assume I know what kind of snake is in the picture. I run these posts because they are outreach opportunities. Please don’t send me private e-mails with your guesses, include them below.
-Remember, the person that sent me the picture is probably reading your comments. Although it is frustrating to know that many of these snakes have been killed, these people do want to learn more about them. More snake knowledge will lead to fewer snakes being killed. Don’t hate, educate.
