Pantherophis guttatus meahllmorum (Thornscrub Rat Snake)

Central Texas Coast, Spring 2014

 

Found under a piece of tin nestled amongst a thick smattering of cord grass near the edge of a salt flat.

 

This individual was the largest I have seen, between three and four feet in length. It appeared to be nearing the end of a shed cycle.

 

Well detailed when viewed large.
