Lampropeltis triangulum amaura (Louisiana Milk Snake)
East Texas 02-18-14
Found under a board I had found this species under before. While the warm weather has brought this snake up to the surface, it is unlikely that many have surfaced yet. A search the day after this yielded none.
Interestingly enough, most amaura I have found have solid red bands, and the yellow has some black bleeding into it. Here, this snake has black bleeding into the red bands, and if you look closely, there are flecks of red in the yellow bands.
