What is that?! You didn't trick me into looking at a dead animal, did you?

No, that's the rear 1/6 of a very-much-alive gopher snake. The subject header refers to the fact that I made sure what kind of tail it had before getting too close.

I've never seen a snake here in Arizona. R has though -- when I was out of town!

From June until September, they tend to be out at night, though our king snake was out during the day not that long ago. I see them when I'm riding my bike around midnight.

Remember, if you do see one, to look for the tail. Not all rattlesnakes have visible rattles. But the black-and-white stripes at the end of the tail are a dead giveaway, as the tail of this gopher snake indicates.
