    SNAKE!!!

    So today a resident called and said they found a snake. So my dad and I went over there to pick it up.. It could just barely not climb out of the 5gal bucket we put it in. I took some pictures of it at the location that we released it.. What is it?


    if you need full size... I can get one up.

    Hi rattler I have a picture of him in the bucket... Doesn't look as cool as hiding in the brush.. But you can definatly see more. The band across the eyes is pretty neat. Little guy was getting in quite the strike position too. Kinda cute

    dammit man, its Wednesday and it was a LOOOOOOOONG press day for me........just for you though i went down to the basement for my snake books...................its a gopher snake of some sort so my gut feeling was right(gopher snake, pine snake, bullsnake.........all the same Genus) a quick look through my book says that the Sonoran gopher is in your area, Pituophis catenifer affinis prolly what it is but i wont guarentee it 100%

    Yes, definitely in that group. I am way out of the herp territories, ect, but I looked up the one Rattler suggested and it looks like a good bet to me.
    Very nice looking snake. I have never seen a Pituophis that young. I have to admit..i saw the head first before the body and it looked so ratsnake like, but the body is a clincher.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    ill take adult Pit's over youngins anyday...........so long as it hasnt been harassed by someone all adult(over 3 foot) bullsnakes ive run across are easy to handle.............anything under 3 foot or so have been the nastiest snakes ive run across............they bite and musk at every oppertunity........well maybe not all adult Pit's i know a guy with an adult black pine that will attempt to take you out at every oppertunity.......he tried to sell that demon spawn to me.........but i iz smarter than that
