Rat Snake

About Rat Snake

The Rat Snake kills by constricting its victims. They feed on rats and mice, which is how they got their name; this makes them very useful on farms. They can be plain, striped black, yellow, brown or gray. When a Rat Snake is threatened, it will rear up and hiss to scare away any predators.
