Jan says be nice to the snakes:

Don’t panic if you see this guy and gal enjoying their morning stroll. They were climbing down this big tree [in Chimborazo] and into the hole at the base when I walked by, said hi and took their photo.

These are Virginia Rat Snakes – they can grow to 6/8 feet and they do no harm except to rats, mice, voles, small birds and probably baby squirrels. Please do not harm them if you see them, just enjoy their beauty.
