most glades in the wild are integrades with yellow rats these days. So its difficult at best to determine yellow or glades. I think you're right about it being an integrade. My guess is it is an escapee or intentional release of a snake someone didn't want anylonger. It is not in the range of bairdi or yellows or glades that I can see so I don't consider it a natural integrade. The color of the tongue would be a clue to yellow or glades. Red tongue should signal a glades crossed with Bairds and black or dark tongue should signal yellow crossed with bairds. Bairds have nice light red tongues like Texas rat snakes. Pure glades have red tongues. Yellow rats have black tongues. Now if its an intentional cross, where are the other babies?

:It looks exactly like some 'Glades rats I've seen. Could it be 'glades X baird's?
