Snake ID

Postby Tom B » Mon Jul 19, 2010 8:05 pm

I have a question. While I was up for the 4th my wife and I took a ride out on Hwy H. We turned down the Rd that leads to the Case testing grounds and there on the road was a snake all of 4 feet long. Brown with Gray diamond shapes on its back. Are there Rattle snakes in the Tomahawk area or was this another type of snake. It was the largest snake I have ever seen in my life and I would swear it was a rattler but I have only seen one other out west. Did not have the coloration of a pine snake and after looking up snakes of Wisconsin still looked like a rattle snake to me.
And Ideas
Thanks Tom B
