    Looks like a sonoran gopher snake, Pituophis catenifer affinis.


    slight possibility it's a young bullsnake, Pituophis catenifer sayi.


    The pine snake was a good guess and they are in the same genus. No pine snakes in New Mexico though.


    Either way I'm sure about the species, the subspecies would need a scale count to be 100% sure.

    Not original, but I enjoyed it, when it was my turn to ask about snakes...
    That is awesome!

    Yep, definitely a Pituophis. They are harmless to humans but their habit of hissing and rattling their tail (which has no rattles) in the dirt and leaves means they needlessly get killed a lot.

    Looks like the one that has taken up residency on the stairs at P1.

    Ok dear snake experts what kinda snake is this one? It is a good size babe, at least 2" in diameter. Location: Suwannee river virgin cave. I tried not to disturb that cave guardian so it protects the entrance until I bring tanks and reels.

    Snake on the right is the cottonmouth, but the pic is not that great, so I'm not sure they both are not. The one on the left is real blury around the head..


    ARY.. probably need a better picture of the head to tell for sure on that one. Maybe Rat Snake?

    There are just 6 venomous snakes native to FL. If your spending a decent amount of time in the Florida outdoors, its a good idea to know how to ID those 6 with certainty. Be super careful with those 6, but try real hard to leave them ALL alone.


    One of my favorite references...
