Visit from a beautiful animal

Guests at our green cabin encountered this friendly Common Kingsnake on the porch late afternoon a couple of weeks ago, and were able to take some sweet photos. They estimated the animal’s length at 3-4 feet. First time we’ve seen this guy around here, ever. Kingsnakes are non-venomous constrictors who said to predate primarily on lizards and snakes — including rattlesnakes. We are grateful for this animal’s presence on our land!
