Desert Night Snake

Kris and I went out the other night, but the low-pressure system moving down on us made it too cold to herp pretty quickly after sundown. On the way back to town we did find a cool little Desert Night Snake (Hypsiglena chlorophaea).

    Bryan,

    Another great find. You seem to have pretty good luck encountering most serpents. I think I’ve been in mostly all the wrong spots out here in the East Valley. On my two treks to South Mountain— zilch.

    Bryan,

    I’ve tried leaving a new comment here, but the 500 server error kept popping up.

    I was gonna say nice find with this Hypsiglena; I think I’ve been critter searching the wrong parts here in the east valley. I’ve trekked up to South Mountain twice; no luck.
