Pretty sure the last one is not a Texas snake. Looks like a San Francisco Garter Snake to me... I think 12f has decided you guys are too good at this and is adding difficulty levels.

Ha! Good catch. The rattlesnakes and garter are from California (southern pacific rattlesnakes and San Francisco garter).

Well that explains my issues with the rattlesnake. Thank you

Great pics 12f Mane as always! Look forward to the variety you get every year.

Neat! Is that a male and female rattler by chance? Is there any way to tell the sex of snakes other than the proof under the tail?

Adult females are generally much bigger and thicker, but expressing the hemi***** is the only way to tell for sure in most species that I'm aware of.

In some pythons the males have small spurs they use to grab hold of the female while mating.

Be careful where and what context you say that or you may be on the couch or worse!

I posted a couple of pics of DBWS found in a West Houston subdivision retention pond to close out the 2020 thread... here are a few more taken this morning.




Editing to add one more photo. The larger one calls this stump home most days. The other two decided to join him this morning.

Diamondback water snakes eat almost exclusively fish year round.

The biggest one I have caught and officially measured was right at 4.5' and was also in Katy. It had about a 1lb channel cat in it's (likely her) mouth. I have seen a few that we're just as big and maybe one or two that "looked" bigger. I don't think they get much bigger than that but am not the expert.
