Coluber constrictor constrictor
On 8.2.2012 we took an excursion to Gettysburg National Military Park and we had to wait for this guy, pictured below, to cross the road. I am not in any way an expert on snakes, but based on a quick search at this site PAHERP – short for the Pennsylvania Herpetological Education and Resource Project , this looked like a Northern Racer: Coluber constrictor constrictor. This snake was over 4 feet long.
