Rat Snake of the road to Pinal Villa
Lorena said she saw him and heard the thump-thump but I must have been paying more attention to other vehicles or bicycles. I said "where" and she said you just ran over it. I stopped the car and sure enough he was on the road behind us. Sad to say that little bulge on his rear section are his insides popping out. I got a stick and tossed him off the road but I'm afraid he was a goner and two school kids stepped in to finish the job. He was over a meter long and I'm sure a good mouse and rat catcher. I believe he is a "Rat Snake"
