approx. 7 feet long
I was exploring Mammoth Hot Springs with a friend and kept coming across bullsnake sheds. We found this massive snake hiding in a crevice.
Young one trying to cross the street E of Riviera. My distraction prevented it from getting run over. Couldn't have been much longer than 2 ft.
About 18 inches. Lives in the bottom of a rotten mesquite tree trunk on a high bank about 50 yards from the Nueces River.
Interesting I have found three of these this year in, alluvial plain habitat unusual for the species, which I find much more commonly in bluestem/gams buffalo prairie/mesquite savannah any thoughts anyone?
The bullsnake (Pituophis catenifer sayi) is a large nonvenomous colubrid snake endemic to the central United States, northern Mexico, and southwestern Canada. It is currently considered a subspecies of the gopher snake (Pituophis catenifer).
