While doing programs at Walney you never know what you might encounter.  Today’s program  focus was about  northern water snakes but when this adult black rat snake presented itself clinging to a tree I couldn’t resist the temptation of showing one of its unique adaptations as a climber.  The snake was surprisingly docile and allowed me to keep it confined to the the trunk during this teachable moment.
