Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

A Young Patch-Nosed Snake from Yavapai County

This was about the most well behaved Desert Patch-Nosed Snake, Salvadora hexalepis hexalepis, I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Unlike his buddies, he sat still long enough for me mto take some photos other than the typical “hold the tail off camera” sort I’m typically forced to take. Anyway, a nice animal for sure.
