Yes, it was under some sandstone rocks in a dry creek bed. The terrain was gently rolling. We were surveying along an existing pipeline right of way so there was a maintained pasture corridor but that corridor was surrounded by a loose post oak dominant forest so it is hard to say if it is more likely to be found in forest or pasture.
Unfortunately, they did not make it. I re-buried them in the soil in a 5-gallon bucket and after about a week of no activity, I moved away the soil and saw that the eggs were stinky and deflated, as though they had been crushed (very gooey, not like deflated as in the snakes hatched). :-(
