I spotted this Gopher Snake basking in the road on the way out to Toroweap. The date was June 6th, 2011. That is the second time that I had come across a Gopher Snake in the month of June on the road. The temperature was in the 70's. He was easy to catch as he was cold and not very active.
On the dirt road on the way out of Toroweap I came across a Gopher Snake that had been run over by a vehicle so I took it home and tanned it.
