  1. What sort of snake is this? We have black snakes with red bellies called Red Bellied Black Snake (original isn't it??). Did this have a gold belly?

  2. This looks to be a black rat snake which one online guide says has a range of, "New England south to North Carolina and Georgia (inland), west through Illinois to Iowa, and south to northern Louisiana." It was a long one, I'm guessing about four feet — and they can get up to a shade over six feet long! Underside was lighter but I'm not sure of coloration. Beautiful animal, though! — JG
