Great spotting Mitch! Sorry I missed this one when you put it up in June. I was busy with my move to NYC then. When you get a chance, consider adding this one to the Snakes of the US mission.
Thanks for the kind remarks folks
Fantástica muy bella
Great series great spotting
The kids ranged from about 15 to 20.
Love that first shot! And what a great opportunity for a teaching lesson. How old were the kids that you were able to show the snake to?
That's wonderful you were able to relocate it. Even better that you took the time to educate others. It's really a shame that snakes have such a bad reputation!
It was just hanging out by the cafeteria. Non-venomous and not dangerous at all, but I relocated it to protect it. Rat snakes do well in dilapidated buildings (because rats hang out there), which my current school has in abundance. I had a little impromptu nature lesson with my kiddos about this little guy (or gal)
First shot is great! Beautiful snake. Can you tell us a little about it?
Had to relocate this guy from our school's cafeteria
