Don’t know if this is a better pic of the snake but still can’t figure out what kind of snake it is ?

Juvenile eastern ratsnake, Elaphe obsoleta. Non-venomous and docile. Adults are darker, almost uniformly black, and also known as the black ratsnake. BTW, I use the older name Elaphe obsoleta because I don't like the new scientific name (Pantherophis alleganiensis) being proposed, which is based on bad science. There is no reason to give it a new name. Some scientists, especially the young turks, just like to stir the pot. Old farts know why the changes are proposed and they just ignore them.
