Eastern Coachwhip

Masticophis flagellum flagellum
(SHAW 1802)
Elk Co., Kansas. April 24, 2010.

I’ve seen a number of eastern coachwhips over the years – on roads and along roadsides, some alive, and some dead. By the time I could stop the car and get out, the live ones were long gone. I hadn’t gotten my hands on a live one until a 2010 visit to Kansas. This snake was found under a large rock on the top of an open hill.

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
