Spring Coachwhip

I found this western coachwhip snake (Masticophis flagellum testaceus) western yellow-bellied racer (Coluber constrictor) in the San Antonio Valley at Shanti Ashrama, 14 miles east of Mt. Hamilton near San Jose, CA. It was under a fallen branch next to a very small stream.

(Thanks to Mike Spencer for the identification correction.)
