Black Rat Snake (Camera Critters)
I found this lovely creature out sunning on the concrete yesterday!
It is probably a black rat snake since he played dead, even when turned over. A black racer would have quickly slithered away. He didn't come around until I scooped him up with a hoe, toted him across the backyard and let him go into the woods across the fence. Even then, he just raised his head to see where I was taking him.
By the way, while he is long, he's not nearly as big as he looks in this picture.
