Rat Snake Black history

The Black Rat Snake is native to parts of North America though its largest range is in the United States. Unfortunately the Black Rat Snake is now endangered in Canada. The decrease in their numbers is due to a variety of factors; among these are hunting and trapping for the pet trade and habitat destruction. Much of their natural range has been destroyed by development. Their range has been restricted to two very small habitat paths in Canada. These lie in the Kingston area and along the shore of Lake Erie. Today these snakes are protected by law and in Canada it is illegal to keep them as pets without the proper ministry permits. Additionally, because many people are afraid of snakes, they are often killed on sight. If the Black Rat Snake is lost in Canada, the rodent and bird populations, which it usually controls, will boom and its useful pest control function will be lost, in addition to the loss of a beautiful creature. Luckily, even though the Black Ratsnake may be threatened in Canada the largest portion of its range is in the eastern United States. This is still a very common snake from Pennsylvania to the mountainous regions of the Carolinas and west to Oklahoma and Illinois. It is readily available in the United States away from the periphery of its range.
