Have you seen me? Green ratsnake sightings have occurred around the park, but not in the park. It is not rare, threatened, or endangered, but is secretive and rarely observed. If you spot a green ratsnake, leave the snake where it is and ask a ranger to fill out a wildlife observation form at the visitor center or download here.
