Bull Snake

Pituophis catenifer sayi

Description:

Bullsnakes are large nonvenomous snake endemic to the southwestern US. They are tan to yellow in coloration with brown to black blotches down the length of their back. Other color variations do occur. This particular snake had a redish hue.

Habitat:

Rock outcroppings, cheat grass terraces and steep rim-rock canyon

Notes:

I helped this very unapreciative bull snake get off the road today, but not before he tried to crawl into our jeep. I had to grab him and with a mighty hiss he twisted himself in a bush and kept a close eye on us as we got back in th jeep. He was the most beautiful bully I had ever seen!
