    I stepped on this snake while running... Does anyone know what it is? (I live in central FL, USA). I think it is 2.5ft long....

    Considering you were able to get close enuf to it to take a pic, I'm assuming you killed it when you stepped on it?

    Yup good call on it being a Yellow Rat... I showed it to my friend last night and he said the same thing.

    Ya unfortunately it died.

    Just got back from running again tonight... Saw another yellow rat snake literally 5ft from the one I stepped on!

    This one was a lot smaller... Made sure I didn't step on the little fellow! Those things really need to wise up and get out of the street!
