Western Coachwhip

Masticophis flagellum testaceus


Western Coachwhips can be a variety of colors (black, reddish, tan, etc). All the ones I've seen in the Texas Hill Country have been this really light yellow like the one in the photo. This one was a good ~5 feet long.


This coachwhip is in an Ashe Juniper.
