Notes

I believe this one was born in the late summer of 2015. I first found its freshly-shed skin on the ground and then spotted the snake coiled amidst some old junk. Sorry for the bad picture. The lighting was poor and it slid back into its retreat before I could get it out in the open for better photos.
The colors don't show up well in the photo, but it had some black coloration to it near its head. The tip of its tail still had some skin attached, which obscured its rattle.
