    I was told she was a rat snake when I had her but I was also told she was a he, and even if she is a rat snake what sub species is she. I want create her environment as closely as I can but can’t at the moment because of this.

    Looks like a rat snake, but it’s not the best pic. Have you got any clearer photos of the whole body and maybe close up of the head?

    I believe she could be wild caught possibly with all the problems but the guy wasn’t looking after her so I just kinda thought tha was the problem

    With those saddles, not a bairds rat snake.

    My guess would be a large grey rat snake, a faded black rat snake or a hybrid.

    I'm leaning towards hybrid, likelt corn x black rat snake :)
