Don't forget to add the scientific name so it can be entered into the database.

Ahh very cool, I didn't realize there were subspecies, I learned something new :) I have only ever seen 4, and it was all at the same time. We have snake traps for research and it was during breeding season. 1 female and the 3 males that followed her in the trap!

Thanks again Ashley! It does look like a Mexican Long nosed snake. I run into them quite often during the summer months, they come out in the mornings to sun themselves and feed.

Very cool find! I have only seen a few before as they are generally underground. This is the darkest one I have ever seen though!
