Trans-Pecos Rat Snake

Bogertophis subocularis subocularis
(Brown, 1901)
Brewster Co., Texas. May 24, 1997

Finding subocularis was an old dream finally come to fruition one night on a back road in the Chihuahuan Desert. Crawling up the embankment on the side of the road, it stood out in the glare of the headlights and we instantly knew what it was. Unfortunately, my slides and negatives of this snake were lost, and the suboc pictured here is from 2014.

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
