I remember i my first stint with rattle snakes...we were riding the country side, hunting javelinas. Then i went thru a shrub and started hearing thehissing sound, very peculiar. I yelled to my friend: " Hey, Loncho...sounds like a flat tire".. he said: " You wish " , your riding a horse and there is no raod insight... :? ...he was right :oops: .

 Now, why didi i think of that/, that was back in 1985.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

Does anyone have this snake identified?  I was think it might be a rat snake because of the coloration, but this snake does not have the two stripes that meet on head and form a point between the eyes.

Someone on the kingsnake.com discussion boards would know.  I only know the basic snakes.

This beauty is a bullsnake (Pituophis melanoleucus sayi?). There are many subspecies inthe US and this one is one of the more colorful.

I found it on the road near Castolon.
