The Leucistic Texas Rat Snake


 

The Texas Rat Snake is a subspecies of the Rat Snake, a common snake found in the United States. This species, native to Texas, is separated as being different from the normal Rat Snake because of their unique variations in coloration.  The Texas Rat Snake can vary from olive-brown to albino; red and orange speckled to leucistic, a form of albinism. The Rat Snake can bite, but is not venomous, making them, especially the tan ones, a popular pet.

Note: I will be gone for two weeks on vacation, so there will be a short break in my blogging. Have a good summer!
