In Reply to: wild-caught Black Rat Snake- belly shot posted by greg woodie on May 12, 2003 at 16:05:44:

Here is a belly shot of my W/C KY locale black rat snake. For you guys that havent seen this before, he was caught in Bullitt county KY as a hatchling in '01. I have had him ever since and he has grown very well. As he has gotten older, he has turned more golden brown color. Most people that see him for the first time think he is a Texas rat.
Take a look at the belly, he has alternating white/yellow. He has started this within the last 6-8 months and it gets more and more noticeable with each shed. I assure you there are no corn snakes in Bullitt county KY, too far northwest for their range.

Now this may fuel your guys debate on GutattusXObsoletus intergrade. I just feel it is natural occuring variablity of the Pantherophis Obs. Obs. This is just my opinion and I am in no way an expert, but I have seen lots of black rats here in this part of kentucy with lots of yellow coloring.

Even my snake has lots of yellow in him, as is evident in this pic.

Happy Herping
