Need help ID'ing my rat snake

Hey guys hope yall are well. Back in '15 I acquired from a fellow on kingsnake a male gray rat white oak phase. As he's gotten older that white pattern dropped and I chalked it up to snakes going through their color phases. However for a couple years now he's stayed this copper orange. I believe he's around 3 foot, but I don't have a good eye for that.

At this point I figure I've got duped but who cares he's a great snake. Now I'm curious as to what kind of rat he might actually be. I've only been able to find one other picture of an orange labeled as a grey rat. Most are the dull black or the white oak variety. Digging around I'm theorizing he might be an Everglades rat or Deckert's Rat snake. I'd like to get some experienced eyes on him.

I'm downsizing my collection once again and this guy will be rehomed. I'd love to know what he actually is. Appreciate any insight. All the best.

Derek

I'd say Yellow Rat...just an orange phase. My Yellow Rat is more green than yellow, and it has the same double stripe down the sides.

Just query "Yellow Rat Snake" on Google, go to the image tab, and you'll see what I mean.
