Notes

This was a nice, healthy looking young adult female rat snake. It appeared to be healthy, but a little skinny. I think it was probably a post-partum female looking for a last good meal or two before the weather cools here in just a month or so. It was crossing a hiking trail and I almost stepped on it while I was scanning the log piles on the side of the trail.
