A Young Striped Whipsnake Mid-Shed

My wife and I found this baby Striped Whipsnake, Coluber taeniatus, under some asphalt shingles out in the middle of the woods for some reason. His clouded eyes, filled with fluid to help him slip out of his old skin, made this already aggressive species even more pissy. His close cousin Coluber bilineatus has had more teeth in me in these last years than any other species. These snakes are assholes.

    Those Colubers ARE assholes. It sucks to expend all that time and energy to chase them down before they disappear like a ninja, all the while knowing full well that they’re just gonna bite the HELL out of you when (IF) you finally do catch them.

    I think the half-hearted attempts to actually get hands on one account for many of the disappearances, haha.
