Common Snake on Uncommon Terms

These long-nosed snakes can be found about anywhere that sleeping lizards can, and I see a lot of them. This kind though, not so much. The clarus phase is lighter and the red bands between the black are completely missing, or in this case faded to a few rosy hold-outs near the last third of the snake.

    This phase is fairly common out here in the Colorado and Mojave deserts.
