I picked this little guy up off the sidewalk in downtown Louisville; Main and 6th, or there about, more frightened of the high heels and wingtips than they were of him.
Beautiful, isn’t he?
Here he is in the overgrowth of the back yard, newly introduced to the world of plants, trees, and earth.
It’s not uncommon for rat snakes to live in the basements of old buildings downtown and he must have come out of a nearby grate. I think he’ll like this environment much better, and I hope I did the right thing for him.
What do you think?
