Lampropeltis calligaster calligaster (Prairie Kingsnake)

Colorado County, Texas - Spring 2014

 

Found crossing a dirt road just after sunset.

 

Lighter than the other three I found this day, this pugnacious prairie king had more attitude than most I encounter. Instead of trying to flee, it coiled its forebody tightly into a striking position.
