About a 3.5 foot long several pound specimen. The size of this species varies greatly, with some populations being stunted and others growing very large. Mainland specimens often reach 100 centimetres (39 in) in length, with the largest on record being 162.6 centimetres (64.0 in) (Klauber, 1956) for C. o. oreganus. (copied from Wikipedia)

that 3rd pic is possibly the coolest pic ive ever seen of a snake
Hi Neil. I will do that later tonight when back at my laptop that has the photos. I have many more shots of this snake without the goofy photographer doing self portraits with it!
Great spotting for snake week Steve! If you could do us a favor though, and crop this picture so the focus is just on the snake. We ask this frequently of users who post trophy shots of themselves holding up a fish they just caught. To be fair, we are extending this rule to other organisms as well. The less human in the photograph, the better. Thanks for understanding, and I look forward to seeing more of your spottings!
