Cobretti is that a corn snake (or rat snake as they're sometimes known)? I've encountered these on the trails but have never been certain as to what they are.

They are aggressive though if you approach!

I had to look it up. Appears to be a Milk Snake. Often confused with a Copperhead and killed because of it. It was mellow, took its time slithering away.

The Corn snakes habitat is from N.J. to the Fl. Keys. Does look similar, more orangey though.

anthonys, I hope you shot that with a telephoto lens. Danger, Wil Robinson!

Cato, that is gnarly. Imagine having an off-trail excursion and crashing into that!

Took this photo while jungle trekking in Borneo. The photo really doesnt do it justice - the colours were awesome.

Pulled the live catfish up out of the water and fought with it for a while. Dont know if he actually got it down or not.
