This snake's most obvious feature is its pointed, upturned snout. It has a yellow to tan body color with dark blotches down its back and round spots along its sides. The underside of the tail is light and the anal plate is divided.
Wooded hillsides, fields, and sandy areas
I couldn't get any dorsal shots of this snake, as it would not stop feigning death. Every time I would turn it over, it would roll back into this pose :-)
