We don't have a documented case of a Western Diamondback in CO. I'm betting this was a Prairie Rattlesnake.

Hard to tell without a closer photo, but it looks pretty big, so I'm thinking Black Rat Snake.

I agree with Ashley, it's a juvenile common five-lined skink.

Don't think that's a sirtalis. Western Terrestrial Garter Snake

I'm going with Storeria dekayi dekayi - Northern Brown snake.

Thinking that's a juvenile southern black racer. Coluber constrictor priapus

I would agree w/ the first comment. Here's a cool link if you live in TX for identifying snakes. http://www.southtexasherpetologyassociat...

If I had to guess, I'd say juvenile black racer.

smetlogik Dekay's Brownsnake

Looks like a Dekay's Brownsnake.

smetlogik Yellow Rat Snake
Yellow Rat Snake commented on by smetlogik Florida, USA9 years ago

From the color, I'd say yellow rat snake.
