Welcome to May!

Awesome Welcome to May from Rattlesnake Research at Muleshoe Ranch

Rattlesnake Research at Muleshoe Ranch

For the month of May I intend to do a short blog post every day, focused on a recent experience at the Muleshoe Preserve. I’ll start with this lovely Sonoran whipsnake (Coluber bilineatus):

While hanging out on the couch yesterday afternoon, I spotted a shiny, slender figure moving along a mesquite branch, 4-5 feet off the ground. Sonoran whipsnakes are often difficult to photograph as they are fast-moving snakes. They often climb into trees to escape danger, so I guess this guy thought he was safe and let us get pretty close and photograph him.

Don’t they have lovely faces?
