I do not know but I will ask University of Kentucky specialists and find out for you. Hopefully I will have an answer for you by early next week at the latest.

It was identified as a black rat snake. Not venomous.
Let me know if you have more questions. You can reach me at the Daviess County Cooperative Extension Service at 270-929-3108 or at Annette.heisdorffer@uky.edu.
