hi, i have just caught a 4 foot pituophis from farmington new mexico, i have been trying to figure if they were sayi or deserticolas for some time now, may be an intergrade? it definatley has characteristics of both. gopher snake head and neck pattern, but the patter fades and turns from black to rust brown at mid body and back to black at the tail. does anyone know if this is in fact a great basin gopher or bul or both. i have seen great basins before and most the blotches are black to dark brown. but this one is different. i also found him on the animas river. do great basins live by rivers and wet lands as bulls sometimes do. for those who dont know farmington is in the nw corner of new mex. all in all it is the most stunning wild pit i have collected. cant post a pic but believe me it is a beauty. not a lot of coloration on the head and not the dark lines in between the labials that i know colorado bulls have. if some one could post some pics of a great basin or two that would be much appreciated. thankyou
