>>Does anyone else notice that the first snakes out for the year are generally on the large side? I guess that their large body size holds heat better than the smaller snakes.<<

The same is true of snakes that stick around in the fall. The reason is that they eat rodents, which are a source of heat and emerge before cold-blooded prey. If you will look at snakes dominant in the northern states there is a trend toward largeness, whereas sub-tropical snakes tend to be fast and skinny.
