Fox snake

fox snake (Elaphe vulpina)
This fox snake (Elaphe vulpina) was crawling out of the wood pile that is stored under our deck. He was enjoying the patio. He did not seem to mind us and I really don't mind him (or her?). He eats small mammals like mice, chipmunks and young rabbits. The downside is that he also eats birds, their eggs and nestlings. fox snake (Elaphe vulpina)
