Notes

Found DOR by Pete V., on the same residential block as the previous observation (Burbank/Verdugos). Photos taken by me upon bringing it home.

Unfortunately, I think this may be the same snake as in this observation seen alive on June 24: http://www.naherp.com/viewrecord.php?r_id=337186

Comparison photo is the second photo attached (one on the left is the June 24 snake, the one on the right is the July 3 snake).

Dead specimen collected for the LA County Natural History Museum, Section of Herpetology.
