The juvenile snake I identified this morning for the field trip as an anerythristic Corn Snake turned out to be a juvenile Everglades Rat Snake. The changes in pattern and color that this species goes through are quite dramatic! Despite having seen dozens of adults over the years this was my first juvenile.
