I am pretty certain your Leptophis mexicanus is actually Leptodrymus pulcherrimus, a much cooler and seldom seen snake on this forum! On my bucket list!

One thing I've found that helps some with fogging is keeping packs of desiccant, such as those that come with shoes, etc., in my camera bag. While by no means fool-proof, it does lessen the effect of moisture on the camera and lens.
