Magnificant Orange Ratsnake

Couple weeks back the morning was off to a great start by flipping a Scarlet King. Later in the afternoon, a nice juvenile FL King. Heading back home, from the car, we spotted something "orange" on one of the banks. Turned out to be a 5 foot plus beautiful Everglades Rat Snake. Problem was it was on the opposite side of the ditch. Well my partner was committed on capturing this guy so he went for a quick swim and brought him back across. Quite a feat! And he was quite a "hot mess" by the time he made it back across!! We brought him home for a photo shoot and release him right back where we found him. Nice to see these guys are still out there.

What a great day! They are all beauties, the Orange looks worth the swim.

Been a long, LONG time since I would have been committed enough to jump in a ditch to bag a snake. Pretty snake, though, so I'm glad it was incentive enough for your partner so you could get some pics of it.
