Description

Observed a pair copulating in a sunny patch along the sandy trail; snakes were about 3 feet long...

Never got a look at their heads (adrenalin was rushing as I turned my camera on and focused)... and then it went into overdrive when another male (presumably) raced in to join the melee.

Reviewing photos makes clear the "white chin" of the SBR.
