Masticophus flagellum testaceus
A long, slender bodied snake that can range in color from black, brown, red, olive, to creamy.
Found in the western US and Mexico, they are often found in prairie habitats.
When a coachwhip feels threatened, they will slither up a tree and look their attacker in the face. This guy didn't seem to mind climbing a cactus to look me in the face! Found in Crossbar Cooperative Management Area.
