New Snake (for us, anyway)

Photos by Ellen Green, 10/9/11

Saw this c. 4-foot long snake on the Esperero Trail. Ellen was quick enough with her camera to catch the head. The rest was the same color and pattern. Looking through the possibilities on the Reptiles of Arizona site, I've identified it as a Sonoran Whipsnake. Hope you agree.


  1. . . . all my snake shots are headless -- lots of snake though.

  2. I got a good pic of one of these guys hanging out in a tree above my head. Very long snake ... pretty color too.
