Dan Weisz and company went on a night walk in Sabino on 6/11/2017. (Many of the critters Dan photographed are in a class that goes unappreciated by my Honey-Matt; they won't be blogged here.) Dan writes:
Crossing the bridge to Bear Canyon, we saw a Variable Sandsnake. About ten inches long, this snake spends most of its life buried in sand, gravel, or surface debris which it “swims” through in search of insect prey.

This critter was also seen by a lucky Kindergarten class in 2012.
