:Pines, Bulls and gophers are all Pituophis...
::recently, i was reading a book on snakes and saw the scientific name 'P. catenifer sayi'. is this right? i thought 'melanoleucus' was the species and 'catenifer' and 'sayi' were subspecies. just wondering if anybody could clear me up on this.

:: thanks!
