A few weeks ago, we happened on the 4-5′ Black Rat Snake slithering on the trail. Judging by the lengths of these 2 snake skins, perhaps one was that same snake – the other its mate? These were seen on the Greenway Trail at Lake Brandt. It appears each snake chose to “grab” a rail pole which fascilitated the slipping off of their skins; I only wish I had witnessed the actual event (yeah, I know – “ewwwww”!!!).
