Wow I've never seen one with these colors! Please add the scientific name, Heterodon platirhinos. Also, please add to the Center for SnakeConservation mission to help document all the snakes in the US. Thanks! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1202...

One of my favorite species. Their colors vary so much from each individual.
