Sistrurus catenatus tergeminus (Western Massasauga)

Northwest Texas - Summer 2014

 

By examining range maps and identifying preferred habitat based on satellite photos, I chose an area I felt I had a good chance of cruising one while on my trek to Colorado.

 

Luckily the area had some fairly recent precipitation and snakes were active, so I was able to locate one of these and a DOR on my first try.
