Sonoran Gophersnakes

Here are a few of the Sonoran Gophersnakes, Pituophis catenifer affinis,  I found during a few days of August in 2009. This is one of the most common snakes we have in Arizona, and I see them quite often. I have two in my collection as well, which were both called in to the AHA hotline as rattlesnakes.  They’re pretty entertaining when you find them, as they put on a really good show most of the time. In fact, I’m still digging teeth out of my left index finger from one of them.
