Gray Rat Snake
April 9, 2004- Johnson Co. IL

I am not sure of the status of Gray Rat Snakes in Southern Illinois.  The Rats that I have found in Pope and Southern Johnson counties appear to be Gray Rat Snakes.  Thats just going by what they look like, so until I see evidence, I am going to call these snakes Gray Rat Snakes.

I've found this species in the following counties:
Alexander Co. IL
Pope Co. IL
Johnson Co. IL
