Yeah....I'd say that's a pretty cool syspila. Look forward to a bunch of private messages asking where you found it!

Oh I'm used to that. :)

And...BTW... I'll tell you where I found it...

Under a rock on a hillside.

It looks just like a Hypomelanisitic Lampropeltis triangulum temporalis!

OMG that's awesomeeee!!! It looks a lot like what they call "T-positive." The T stands for Tyrosinase, which in this case would be in a greater quanitity in its pigment than a normal snake, giving it this light color on its saddles.
Maybe it isn't T-positive, but whatever it is it is SOOO COOL!! Awesome find!
