One More elegans … A Painted Desert Glossy Snake from Hudspeth County, Texas

Between the desert glossysnake and Kansas variety I posted last week, I found this Painted Desert glossysnake in the North Western extreme of Texas out and about at 52F … cold enough that I wasn’t comfortable with a long photo session. These snakes can be incredibly colorful, and this is a good example. Most of the ones I’ve seen are in extreme Eastern Arizona, and they look a little more light and pink than this guy, who’s much more orange and the outlines in the pattern quite distinct.
