  1. We stumbled upon this snake in the woods today in Gwinn. It was near the Escanaba River, off of a two-track road. It was in a big log-pile. The weird thing is that it was "rattling" at us.

    anyone else seen one of these snakes ?

  2. He is correct it's a Fox or what many call a Pine Snake. They will shake their tail and if around dry leaves they can sound like a Rattler. A very common snake in WI.
