These are the most commonly encountered large snakes in most of North Carolina. They have highly variable color patterns, ranging from solid black in the mountains and Piedmont to yellowish-green with dark stripes in the Coastal Plain. They are very strong constrictors and can climb trees.
Seen at Mason Farm Biological Reserve while helping with maintenance there. The snake was not happy with me photographing it and it lunged at me after a few shots but it stayed in the tree.
