Hi Terry
I put the rat snake on a bath room scale and it weighed a little less than 6lb.
Nice big Indigo, I love finding large snakes, gives you some hope for the species future. last year I found a king rat much bigger than the one in the photo, I couldn't belive my eyes when I firt spotted it. I found it in the city. I susspect these snakes are eating stray puppies as well as rodents and fish, there are a lot of big rat snakes and a lot of ferral es with puppies, in the same area, I did notice some of the litters get smaller, but I have no proof what happennd to the missing puppies. This comming summer I'm going to try find some proof of this.

Don, looks like you'v had some great adventures all over the world. Have you ever been to Africa ? I grew up on a farm there, my plan is to perchase a small game farm some where in the Noth of SA in two years. I'm very fond of hots, and other large reptiles living in an appartment, I'v had to limited my collection to smaller reptiles and non venomous.
Yes Don nice to see what you guys look like. Thanks for the pics.
Here's a pic of Achalinus formosanus.
