It is unclear what type of snake it is at this time, but a spokesperson with the Department of Natural Resources told Scripps station WRTV in Indianapolis it appears to be a large rat snake or a grey rat snake. Both of those species can grow to be four to five feet long and are good climbers. Neither are venomous.
