Re: rescued rat snake listed
Four and a half feet sounds a little large for it to still be "a tan color". I'm not an expert on black rats. We have gray ones here. But, that doesn't sound right to me. I could be wrong, and that doesn't mean it's not a great snake. I'm just questioning whether it's actually a "black" rat.
