This was a gigantic Black Rat Snake! It was crossing the road and I jumped out and took its picture. It didn’t take too kindly and started rattling its tail in dry leaves to make me think it was a rattler. You can’t fool me with that trick, buddy! Although I did keep my distance because about a month ago I was walking on a trail and saw a coiled up rat snake. It also rattled its tail to warn me off, but I learned down to take its picture and it lunged at me. I jumped back and let it go its way without taking its picture. They can be jerks…Pantherophis obsoletus
