Back in the late 60's, I collected a very unusual rat snake actually inside the confines of Everglades National Park. There used to be an area of privately owned farmland very close to the Royal Palm Ranger Station. A number of old cinder block buildings held a good population of yellow rats and a few corn snakes. This snake looked like a "glades phase" yellow rat snake except for the head. The head had a faded, but very distinctive spearpoint pattern typical of E. guttata. It was also a bit over 5 feet long, which is way out of the normal size range for a South Florida corn. Sure appeared to be some some of hybrid to me. We had Louis Porras look at this guy and he agreed. Needless to say, this was way before the captive breeding of corn snake morphs got underway.
