We ended up finding six spotted leaf-nosed snakes, but 4 of those were freshly killed (one even still moving).
Spotted leaf-nosed snakes aren't typically this common on roadways, but it was nice to see them out in good numbers. The one above was pretty little.
We were glad to see a large specimen alive on the road, too. It was the last snake found of the night.
We also found a couple shovel-nosed snakes, and thankfully, no dead ones. We got some nice defensive posture shots. I had never seen a shovel-nosed snake posture like this and strike, so it was a lot of fun to see.
This little one gave us some good pics. I like how he's almost totally black and white. There's a very slight pinkish hue.
This little shovel-nosed was our first snake of the night. It was out on the road just after dusk.
This was the larger shovel-nosed snake we found.
This guy had more of the usual coloration with the alternating red, yellow, and black.
Shovel-nosed snakes are an attractive species. Seeing the habitat during the day the next morning was a little bit of a surprise, though, because it was more rocky than I was expecting.
