Garter snake?

Post by yuccahead » Sun Mar 20, 2011 2:53 pm

I came across this guy earlier today. This was the second time this week I came across a snake in the trail and didn't see it until it began moving away. This one was about 24" long. Not sure of the ID though.

Yes, that is a Western Terrestrial garter snake (Thamnophis elegans).
