Rat snake (Ptyas mucosa)


Rat snakes are medium to large constrictors that feed primarily on rodents and birds and, with some species exceeding 3 m (10 feet).

Rat snakes are found wherever rats and frogs/toads are prevalent. So, of course, they are often found in rice fields and in human habitation.
