It had the wrong head shape for a king snake, but (not visible in the picts.) the keeled scales and divided anal plate were the definitive characteristics. Oh, and it tasted like chicken. ;-)
Though I have caught the occasional docile BRS, as Mac indicated most are
aggressive biters when held. This one was cold which explains it's docility.
It didn't even eject musk, which (trust me) is far worse than it's bite.
A bite is a few pinpricks, but getting musked is nasty.

We had a squirrel stealing zip lock bags of food off the picnic tables at the Hot Springs Hang. We chased the squirrel twice and were able to recover the food before it made it up the tree.looks like the squirels found it
Sounds like a good time was had by all. Hope to make the next one.
I'm not a herpetologist but I did stay in a nice hotel last night (not really)
It's a Black Rat Snake. I'd stake my reputation on it
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
