Hardeeville, SC Yellow Rat Snake

This yellow rat was caught earlier this summer by me and a friend a couple miles north of this spot in Hardeeville, SC in Jasper County. The property was getting cleaned up and we found him under one of the last pieces of tin. Some snakes, even some rat snakes, refuse to accept captivity. For instance, he rarely ate and when he did he would drop the mouse and not go back to it if spooked. Only one thing to do in that case: take the snake back and let it go. Which is what I did. Hoping this is a better spot for him, maybe we saved him from a lawnmower or bulldozer blade, ultimately.
