Western ribbon snake

Thamnophis proximus


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


Shrubs along agriculture field


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!
