loarie's ID: Baja California Lyre Snake (Trimorphodon lyrophanes)

The range and the patterning isn't right for a juvenile racer. I', going with a lyre snake: http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=0000+0000+0506+2028

What do you think?

I think you do have a lyre snake here when markings, size and location are considered.

My field guide doesn't recognize that species, but I think you guys are right (though it does fall in the range documented in Western Reptiles and Amphibians, 3rd edition, by Stebbins).
