As for black snakes,I saw one so big once that I Honestly donít think anyone would believe me if I told them.It was along a riverbank where the floodwaters left a mound of debris,looked like a brush pile..But that black snake was laying n top,every bit of 10 feet long and looked like a freaking anaconda laying on that pile of debris.
I've seen a few black snakes here too while fishing, but none that large

Timber rattlers are one of the prettier ones IMO.

Check Pennsylvania Fish and Game regs on Timber Rattlers, pretty sure there's some restrictions on catching or killing them.
