Description

Two rat snakes entwined in a bushy stump. One is about 4'+ long the other is 6'...possibly longer. They were first seen separately in different parts of the yard...then one was up the tree and the other was below but still on the ground. We watched the second larger snake climb up and "snuggle" with the other. The smaller snake had a place about the size of a half-dollar that looked like a spot that didn't shed or perhaps a scar.

The smaller one used it's tail to rapidly rattle some leaves while it was on the ground and I was getting a close up.
