Holey moley! I didn't know all these snakes were there!! I will definitely be more careful. I shudder to think of walking off the path and into one of these? EEK. Really great photos and information.
I like the lizards, not snakes! The photos are great though.I don't know what I would do if I see snakes in the backyard, like you, my brave lady!
Wonderful photos! I've seen two non-poisonous snakes up at the ranch, by the water faucet, where I wash out the horses' buckets! Eek! Both times they were gopher snakes!
Really interesting! we have a blunt nose viper in Cyprus which is the poisonous one we have to watch out for.
I get a lot of snakes in my yard, too. King snakes and racers, so far no poisonous ones. I like having them here, the help control the rodents, but you can keep the rattlesnakes.
Whoa, that's a lot of reptiles! You really have to watch your step in the backyard.
I live in New Mexico and I relate to all these critters and LOVE them. I lived in the jungles of Australia where they have some fascinating reptiles. Some of the worlds deadliest snakes(to humans). Your photography is WONDERFUL. Very exciting site. Will bookmark it and stumble it. Thank you. Robin Eastonwww.nakedineden.com
Wow! What an abundance! The pictures are great- I love the cat ears on your mystery snake! I've no idea what kind it might be though. I am still working on standing still if I see a snake, and not letting my impulse to go the other way take over!
Diane,Stop by my deserthorses blog to pick up an award from me to you! LOVE your blog! Thanks for stopping by my blogs!~~Cheryl Ann~~
Love the snakes. There is a great reptile ID site run by one of the proffs at the U of AZ. I have a link on my site.
Wow...scary and beautiful at the same time. That's nature for ya! :-)
Desert King Snake "Lampropeltis getula splendida"
Desert King Snake does seem the most likely. Since the pattern is a little different, maybe a subspecies of Lampropeltis getula splendida.
