 First rat snake

So I got my first rat snake yesterday, a yellow rat snake to be exact! There’s no reason in particular for me writing this post exactly, I’ve just thought that I’d share! I was actually quite surprised at how fast they move! I have had heavily bodied snakes that don’t move all that fast, but this little guy is a runner!

I’m going to give him a good week or two to calm down a little more but in general he’s not as bitey as I expected.
