The Red Rat Snake in Miami-Dade county; 14 March 2019

Pantherophis guttatus, the Red rat snake (Corn snake);
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2019).

I sure do love a Florida-wild Pantherophis guttatus. Breeders may lust after variable color morphs of the Red rat snake, also known as the Corn snake, but I don’t think there’s anything prettier than a vividly-patterned, wild specimen romping about the Floridian peninsula. This youngster was no exception. Incredible patterns!
