Noah, this great series has been chosen as Spotting of the Day during our first-ever Snake Week! You've got an awesome collection of snake spottings and this week was the perfect time to show one of them off. Hope to see many, many more awesome shots from you and don't ever change your name! ;)

"The Eastern Kingsnake's real claim to fame is the ability to kill and eat other snakes, including venomous species like cottonmouths and rattlesnakes. Because of their natural immunity to pit-viper venom, the bite from a venomous snake has little effect on them."
