Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Awesome snake, would love to see one someday! Check out this link, the taxonomy has changed on this snake. It is now lumped with eastern rat snake and there aren't any subspecies anymore, though you can still call it an everglades rat. The scientific name now is Pantherophis alleghaniensis :) http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology/fl-...
