Bullsnake everyone was convinced was a rattler
This big fella was hanging out in the driveway of my work. He has beautiful markings and looks to be well fed.
This medium sized bullsnake was in the middle of the road with traffic approaching. I caught the snake, we examined it and took a few shots in hand and back on the road (the bullsnake hissing all the while, but it never attempted to bite), then released it well away from the road.
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).
