Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Great Basin Gophersnakes

Found 5 or 6 Great Basin Gophersnake hatchlings this evening between sunset and moonrise.  All of them were very young, probably only a few days to a couple weeks old, and all were out warming themselves on the pavement for what could very well be their first meal…

Anyhow, I got some decent pictures of a couple of them, so here they are!

Time for your closeup!

My favorite shot of the night...

Anyhow…it was a really nice night.  I took a new Eastern Sierra Herpetology Club member out for his first roadcruise, and we were lucky enough to find several hatchlings.  Not bad, if you ask me. 

Thanks for taking the time to look!
