My Mom correctly answered the first snake ID request of 2015 – it is a red rat snake (aka corn snake), Pantherophis guttatus. They, along with most other rat snakes, are excellent climbers and are commonly found curled above the ground (above door jams, in trees, in electrical boxes, etc.). Thanks for participating!
Rhett put together some animated gifs of our daily beard photos from the 2014 southwest snake research trip. Thanks!
My neighbor just sent me this photo of a snake found in an outdoor electrical box. It doesn’t officially feel like spring until I get my first snake ID request, thanks Thomas! This picture was taken in central Florida – any guesses as to what kind of snake it is?
