Eastern Milksnake, Lampropeltis triangulum triangulum

… aaaaand the milksnake mentioned in the previous post. Another very common snake in Pennsylvania, but of course the first (and only) I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing to me how much the pattern and color converge with non-Lampropeltis genera (such as Pantherophis) of similar lifestyle. Not the most colorful of the species, it was a really nice diversion on the way to the 20 or so Timber rattlesnakes we saw that day.
