Snakes Are Our Friends

I found the yellow rat snake pictured below while walking to the ferry from the golf cart parking area. The person next to me nearly jumped out of her skin (She shall remain nameless to safeguard her dignity. No, it wasn’t Judy, she loves snakes). Most of the snakes on Dewees are very helpful to humans. They get rid of rats! and mice.

It’s amazing to me that rat snakes can climb trees, pilings and other vertical surfaces.
