Pituophis catenifer annectens
- Commonly seen near the trails at the Wetlands, they are seen a lot especially during the spring (males that are searching for a mate) and during the fall (when there are hatchlings).
- Their coloration is tan, light brown or yellowish, with large brown and black rounded blotches along their back and smaller ones on their sides.
- Gopher snakes are also known to flatten their head and vibrate their tail in order to mimic a rattlesnake!
- They are good burrowers, climbers and swimmers!
