A non herpers find in Las Cruces New Mexico.

Post by Ross Padilla »

My cousin's friend recently found this in his driveway in Las Cruces NM. Thought I'd share.

Wow, that a nice King. I was down there at White Sands Missile Range all week. Is it true they like to eat Crote's?

Nice. Those counties right at the tip of Texas have the nicest splendida by far.

That's interesting. I figured this was just a random screamer from the area. Its definitely one of the nicest splendida I've seen. The really dark head pattern really stands out to me. He said it was a beautiful snake with greenish hues to it.

Yes, they'll eat those and any other kind of snake they can over power and swallow.
