Desert Glossy Snake

Arizona elegans eburnata
Klauber, 1946
San Diego Co., California. April 4, 2012.

On a night where the low desert road was busy with sidewinders, I spotted this little serpent just as it left the road. I was sure it had slithered off into the desert, but running back, I saw it had paused on the edge of the still-warm pavement.
