Notes

Originally passed as road debris and straddled as it was passed. Murray Gilbertson thought otherwise. Upon inspection, debris was a pair of Chihuahuan Lyre Snakes mating in the road. Female's head was clipped. Female and data given to Ian Murray for submission to Herp Review for a Natural History Note and female deposited into MSB. MSB ID unknown by Chris Newsom. Male in photo.
