Description

Adult between 3-4 feet long with the marking exactly as shown in our Texas Snakes book. My husband was clearing a trail in our pine/mixed woods near a creek, and the snake zipped past him and coiled up in some underbrush, where we were able to photograph it. The snake never shook its rattles, and in fact, we never could see the tip of the tail.
