Coluber constrictor etheridgei (Tan Racer)

Tyler County, Texas - Spring 2014


Found crossing a road in the late afternoon, I ended up straddling this snake with my car. When I got out, it was still sitting in the middle of the road. Upon approach it snapped up and struck at my face, unsuccessfully.


This almost uniformly tan racer represents the majority of the examples I personally see of this species.
