Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Hypsiglena chlorophaea loreala
Mesa Verde Night Snake

Montezuma Co., Colorado
May 27th, 2011

This pretty snake was found crossing a two-lane asphalt road early in the morning.  It was detained for a short while to get its picture taken, and kept its head flattened in a 'back off, I'm a pit viper' manner the entire time.
