78 degrees Fahrenheit at capture
This medium sized snake was found crossing a dirt road in between high quality pine sandhill habitat on a mostly sunny day. Upon discovery it froze in place, then attempted to move off the road. As we attempted to work with the snake it continued to retreat and began rattling, only standing its ground as a last defense. It never struck at us.
