While out at Lucky Hammock birding I found this 5 foot ratsnake sunning on the road.  I was really upset when 20 minutes later a huge pick-up truck came barreling down the road and intentionally tried to hit it.  I looked away when I saw the truck nearing the spot.  I still don't know if it hit it but I do know the truck never slowed down and was driving in the middle of the road.  When leaving, the snake was gone and there were no signs of death.  Hopefully this beautiful guy was spared.
