The gray rat snakes around here really are rather pretty. Yet if you just go 20 or 30 miles north of here around Tallahassee, they get darker. I've only found one really large gray rat snake here on the property and he was still rather brightly colored.

The prettiest example wild gray rat I have seen was a DOR out west of us near Cape San Blas. It was a very bright silver color with chocolate colored blotches on it. It was around 3.5 to 4 ft. long, if I remember correctly. Right on route 30A east of the turnoff to Cape San Blas.
