Western ribbon snake

Thamnophis proximus

Description:

~24", seen foraging after heavy rain about 4 feet off the ground.

Habitat:

Shrubs along agriculture field

Notes:

I decided to press my luck and try to get the snake to pause for photography by catching a small green tree frog and offering it to the snake. As you can see, it had no issues being hand fed!

Or it could be a
Orange-striped Ribbonsnake (Thamnophis proximus proximus)
The color orange doesn't always show on the snake
