Whipsnakes are some of the smartest little guys around. By little I mean thin but the get pretty long. Notice he has taken his seat at the top of the pile of a dozen or so rattlesnakes for safety reasons. Not a bad idea. 🐍💤

Pacific Gopher Snake (Pituophis catenifer catenifer)- San Mateo County, California Gopher Snakes are medium to large bodied colubrids typically found in arid grassland, chaparral, and desert habitats. As their common name implies, these snakes generally feed on rodents, such as field mice, voles, and gophers. When threatened, the Gopher Snake will puff up its body, exhale air to make a deep hissing sound, and vibrate their tail (often in an attempt to mimic the venomous rattlesnake).

A juvenile Puerto Rican Giant Whiptail (Pholidoscelis exsul) growing a new tail. This lizards, often called "iguanas" by locals, are very common around houses and are very much used to people, to the point where some can be hand fed or even handled without a problem. #reptiles #reptilesofinstgram #reptilesofig #reptiles_of_instagram #reptile_addicts #herping #herps #squamata #teiidae #lizardsofinstagram #lizards #lizardsofig #conservationphotography #wildlife_seekers #wildlife #animals #wildlifephotography #natureshots #ig_wildlife #instagood #herpetology #herpetofauna #bestshotz_animals #wildlife_perfection

For the past couple of seasons I've been periodically searching a seemingly PERFECT looking sandstone outcropping for Mountain Kingsnakes to absolutely no avail.... this outcrop should be extremely snakey based on it's location and outside appearances - yet previously only a few neonate Northern Pacific Rattlesnakes and a lone Western Yellow Bellied Racer have been found in quite a few searches. Finding this California Kingsnake definitely explains the lack of tri-colored treats and the lack of snakes in general at this particular locale... I've noticed that in areas where mountain kings have knowingly been over collected throughout the years that these guys tend to move in and take over - perhaps a favorable habitat niche is opened up once a few mountain kings are removed .... you figure once the mountain king numbers drop substantially and breeding is no longer possible the number of available prey items increases quickly - an over abundance of lizards would certainly call in these top predators which unlike the mountain kings - tend to roam a bit farther away from their rocky lairs using open grasslands as their homes. I don't know the history of this particular outcropping but I'm sure it's seen it's fair share of people searching it and most likely collecting from it. Although there is no real evidence of this place being pilfered in recent times - every rock seemed to be in it's respective resting position...there could've been a point in the past where this was a very well known mountain king locale. In instances I've witnessed where they're over collected it can sometimes take years for new snakes to show up to the rocks and find permanent homes, that is of course if these wanderers don't find the rocks first and create a stronghold. It's just a theory thus far but I've definitely witnessed this phenomenon in at least four separate "well known" Mountain Kingsnake localities. I will be leaving this place alone in the years to come. 👎🏻 #Bummer #ButStillBeautiful #NotTheLampropeltisIAmLookingFor #Getula #CaliforniaKingsnake #BlackNWhite #LivingArt #WideAngle #Scenery #SantaCruzMountains #CitizenScience #Herpetology #Forest #UnexpectedOutcomes #WeakSauce

The warm colors, on top of the orange leaves in the Fall really make reptiles stand out in my opinion! I don't think Smokey minded the cooler weather too much, since he got some nice rays from the afternoon Sun. . . #reptiles #snakes #herps #ballpythons #snake #ballpython #reptile #animalkeeping #reptilekeeping #reptilekeepers #pets #petsnakes #snakefeeding #herpetology #herpetoculture #herping #youtube #videos #studiophotography #sony #sonycamera #canon #canonphoto #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #animalsofinstagram #snakesofig #reptilesofig #animalsofig
