Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Coluber bilineatus
Sonoran Whipsnake

Sonora, Mexico
August 26, 2014

I'm built for comfort, not for speed, and when it comes to jumping out of moving vehicles and catching snakes on the move, I usually come up empty-handed.  So when this whipsnake boiled across the pavement in front of the car, I gave it a shot, with low expectations.  I don't know who was more surprised, me or the snake.
