This is actually a really old shot from the time I captured my temporary best friend... temporary because eventually we had to release her back home but she was neat while she lasted! We named her Sandy because we found her on the beach of our lake at my summer camp. Everyone should know that she was an absolutely stunning animal and her under belly was like a work of art.

And while I am at it. This is Blackjack! He is one of three known blacksnakes that live in our yard. I am not sure if he is a kingsnake, or a ratsnake. But since they are apart if the same family, I guess it doesn't matter to much. He was using the fence to shed. (That us why he looks all wrinkly) He is a pretty boy, and he is huge! He is at least 7 years old and around 5 feet long. The other to or a lot smaller. Lady Blackscale is maybe 4 and a half feet, and Obsidian is a little over a foot in length. #blacksnake#ratsnake#kingsnake#reptiles
By the why, I forgot to mention that Blackjack and the others are all wild snakes, they are just friendly.
