Description

Found stretched across the Backbone Trail. There had been a slight rain during the morning and thunderstorms were moving into the area. The rain was brought by the remnants of Tropical Storm Dolores. I specifically went mtn biking today in hopes of finding a mtn kingsnake moving with the change in weather. Was thrilled to observe this rather large adult.

I'm not sure if this is a baby night snake or a baby rattlesnake? Hoping to get confirmation.

A small adult California Kingsnake that we discovered underneath a cover board in the late morning of a warm day.

This particular specimen measured approximately 85 - 90 cm in total length. We are not certain of it's sex, and we did not squeeze around its vent to check for any hemipenes emerged to emerge.
