Notes

The third photo is after I moved it off the road. I've seen plenty of DOR snakes here lately, so I'd hate to see such an amazing snake suffer a similar fate.

Not sure. This is only the second adult I've seen, and this was a male. I will say it was the same size as the female. I almost though that I had cruised up the female that I found 2 weeks ago haha. But, as I said, this was a male.

Nice! Is that about as big as they get?
