Description

We watched this snake slither down this tree. What was equally interesting was watching four nearby birds - a pair of Gray Catbird, a Black-throated Blue Warbler, and a Red-bellied Woodpecker - as they, too, watched this spectacle. The Gray Catbirds were raising their wings, vocalizing, and clearly trying to chase this perceived nest robber out of the area. A great moment!

Description

Part of a Early Warning project for non-native finds in the wild, if anyone sees a second corn snake in this area please contact me here, and I will contact the appropriate agencies to see if a strike team is needed to try and eliminate the populations. Also please capture the Non Native and place in a secure container and contact me to have me or the right agency contact you to retrieve the animal. You can always be anonymous with me.

Not found by me, an anonymous friend took this picture.

NOT Native. Please spread the word that releasing non native wildlife, is not only illegal, but
it can have devastating effects
on our native wildlife. New DNA
methods are incredible and it is
getting easier to track down thosethat release unwanted pets into the wild.

Description from Wikipedia

The Red Cornsnake (Pantherophis guttatus), corn snake, or red rat snake, is a North American species of rat snake that subdues its small prey by constriction. The name "corn snake" is a holdover from the days when southern farmers stored harvested ears of corn in a wood frame or log building called a crib. Rats and mice came to the corn crib to feed on the corn, and corn snakes came to feed on the rodents....
