Coachwhip update

Hello All Ė Last year I posted a note about a snake in my tortoise pen and you folks helped me identify it as a coachwhip. She has been around all summer and has even come out and cruised around the tortoise pen while people were working in there. It is such a thrill to watch that beautiful creature doing her thing in her natural habitat (Iím sure she is a her because I have found a baby coachwhip both last summer and this summer). Anyway, I knew she was a pretty big snake but its always hard to judge the length of a snake as it slithers by. Last weekend she shed her skin and it was a full 66 inches Ė I donít know how big they get but I think she is a pretty impressive snake.

Iíve spotted another snake who is shorter and fatter than the coachwhip but I think it is a closely related species. It is more brown than the red of the coachwhip but seems to have the same pattern. Any ideas what that is? I also have a large kingsnake that I see frequently and a big gopher snake. Rattler sightings are frequent but seem to be fewer now that there are so many other snakes in residence.
