This is one of our Aesculapian Ratsnakes, the symbolic species depicted on the medical caduceus. These inquisitive snakes have such a friendly demeanor and are fascinating to observe. Underrated indeed!
I never knew what kind of snake was used in the symbol of med. Nice to finally know and see a real individual of the species. Ill look em up.
Very interesting snake the gold/yellow phases ive seen are really pretty
