Notes:
This snake was about 20" long. Its body temp was unusually low compared to the air and ground temps. I assume it probably just crawled up out of a burrow and onto the edge of the pavement right before I found it.

Appears as though it may be an intergrade P.c. affinis/annectens. Habitat was definitely more typical of affinis.
