I'm a lyre!

Thanks to The Serpent Princess of Dancing Snake Nature Photography for verifying the true identity of the snake in Ned's photo below! (I corrected the post as well.)

This beauty is a Lyresnake, most likely a Sonoran Lyresnake. (I initially misidentified one 6 years ago!) These snakes aren't seen very often in Sabino, because they're nocturnal (except when they find a particularly warm spot, it would seem).

The snake above is actually a Gophersnake, though. Now you know!
