Hey Mike -

That is a very nice yellow rat. It actually has quite a bit of orange to it. Did you find this in/by the Orlando area?

Yeah, you are right it could be an everglades too! I have seen yellow's with similar colors around Tampa before.

I would consider this an Everglades Ratsnake. It was capture and release on the Northwest side around Lake Oceechobee. Never seen one this orange in the Central Fl Area... thnks mike
