Last night's hunt found 1 Gopher Snake, 2 more DOR, 1 Shovel-nosed, and 1 Lyre. In the Santa Ysabel area, we had a fresh Calif. Kingsnake DOR. If we had only been a few minutes quicker :x

Question, the Gopher we saw was between Scissor's Crossing and Yaqui Wells, near Plum Canyon. It appeared lighter in color than a typical San Diego Gopher. Can the Sonoran Gopher be found in this area?

Thanks!

Since, I can't figure out how to post images here. Here is a link to the image of the gopher.

It would be better to have a full shot but going by that picture it doesn't seem to have the typical SD Gopher pattern or coloring to the blotches. The snake I posted is what you would call a typical SD pattern but the colors are pretty light. Nice website, btw.

Yes, the Sonoran (influence) comes up to that area. Yours looks like the classic intergrade from what I can see in the pic.

The pic on your link looks pure annectens to me. Eimon's way more knowledgeable about the snakes in that area, however. Need to see whole body shot. Nice looking Gopher btw.
