Sonoran Whipsnake - but this snake is NOT poisonous!

This Sonoran Whipsnake makes an appearance every so often. Well, actually I should say that I SEE him every few weeks. For all I know, he makes daily appearances.

Like all whipsnakes, he's VERY fast and VERY long--probably more than 60+ inches. He eats the same things that rattlesnakes do (lizards, birds, small mammals, etc.) but he's NOT poisonous.

I followed him back to his hidey-hole so now I know where he lives. Now that the rattle snake population has been reduced, he might feel more emboldened to roam around.
