Black Rat Snake
July, 2000- Carter Co. MO

Whether or not they are happy to see me, I am always glad to see a Black Rat Snake.  The first one I ever saw swam right in front of our canoe, and then watched us from a tree as we watched it.

I've found this species in the following counties:
Carter Co. MO
Wayne Co. MO
Jackson Co. IL
Union Co. IL
