An Eastern Ratsnake (Pantherophis alleghaniensis), also known as a Black Ratsnake, spotted near the boardwalk that goes through the wetlands of Huntley Meadows Park. The snake is coiled in a small cavity on the side of a dead tree, approximately eight feet above the water surface. This is the best shot I could get from my limited viewpoint on the boardwalk.
