Description

We encountered what we believe was a black/gray rat snake in one of our county parks today, Genesee County, Michigan, just east of Flint. I got this shot as it slinked down a slope towards a mill pond. It is the largest snake I've ever seen, a good 3+ feet in length and some bulk to it, too. I read that it is harmless to humans, but not to rodents, which it kills like a python/boa.
