Black Rat Snake

Pantherophis Obsoletus


Black with a white underbelly.




A snake that I caught in a nature park with my dad. It was a bit aggressive at first, but after I held it for a while it calmed down. When I let it go, I watched it climb straight up a tree which was very cool to watch. I included a picture of that as well.

Yes, they are able to do that to raid Bird nests of eggs or chicks. Glad you caught him climbing a tree.
