it is if you're trying to do a quick ID to tell if it's a snake you need to get good photos of for ID purposes
Sistrurus catenatus is a possible but not verified in my area and I keep hoping to find one. If I do I'll report it to the state herpetologist and we'll have an official record, but I'll have to have really good photos of it (not artistic just ones that make it a good ID). Right now I think they've been verified in the south eastern 1/3 of the panhandle maybe but I'm more in the center.
that whole genus is also on my lifer list; I've never seen a pygmy rattler in the field and I really want to. I've seen most of the herpetofauna in the Panhandle at least once or twice but not those or the milk snake, or the ground snake. I've seen every chelonian we have, I've seen every lizard we have except for one (even if I haven't seen them all *here*, some were found in NM or further south in Texas). But I'm missing several amphibians and snakes.
Ugly people have sex all the time. We wouldn't have 6 and a half billion humans if you had to be beautiful to get laid.
