Eye to eye with a Striped Whipsnake

So, while I was walking along in some crazy wash or another, a second beautiful Striped Whipsnake modeled for me. Seriously. He stopped right where he was, allowed me to pull my camera out and set it to macro and slowly, s-l-o-w-l-y, lower my hand down to his eye level to get a series of photos of him at mad close range. Inch and a half from lens to nose. Ranger Rob (Mouse Victor of previous post) loves snakes as much as I do, and he was speechless when I showed him yet another close-close-close-up of this reptile. He swears that nobody can get that close to this species, as they have no patience for humans. But… this is the second one that let me.

  5. Weren’t you looking for mouse control? As you are on such good terms with this snake, would he come and work for you? Do they eat rodents? Chris
