|Metallic Rat Snake
Adult F0. Besides the coloration differences, the eastern bairdi population has a much more relaxed demeanor than the western population. Actually, these eastern bairdi are the most laid back rat snake with which we've ever worked. More amiable than even the corn snake.
This animal was about 20 years old and 6 ft in length when this photo was taken and never once displayed bad temper over that entire time.
