I suppose field collecting is more like going out and finding a wild animal and taking a picture or taking the snake. My most consistent wild snake experiences are always as a teacher with an open admiration of snakes. The kids always bring me wild caught snakes. And they are (so far thank goodness) always Sonora Semiannulata. The little ones are tan with black heads, and as they mature the black head fades, and they develop an orange stripe... I know that there is a patternless variety and also a banded variety. The other day one of my students brought me a solid red (dorsally) variety, and I have never heard of this one. Has anyone else? The picture above is of the very first of this kind that I found myself after it wandered into my classroom (yes, I know it looks like a Tantilla, but it's definately sonora semiannulata), and next to that one is the red phase.
