Corn Snake; Red Rat Snake
Elaphe guttata

This attractive Corn Snake was stretched out on the trail at Big South Fork. Cornsnakes could appear to be a copperhead at first glance, but the dark patterns don't constrict over the backbone to make an hourglass pattern and the head is rounded instead of flattened and triangular. Snakes help control the rodent and insect population, they are an important part of a healthy ecosystem.
