California Red-sided Garter Snake

Thamnophis sirtalis infernalis
(Blainville 1835)
Marin Co., California. May 2, 2014

Found on the edge of a freshwater lagoon, just a hundred yards or so from the ocean. The most beautiful of the garter snakes? This species certainly gives the San Francisco Garter Snake a run for its money.

This species is featured in my Notes From The Field blog post ‘Thamnopalooza‘.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
