Feel the love, gopher snakes!
Please ID this snake ...I'm hoping it is a gopher snake.- Benton County, Oregon
Thank you for the great photo! That really helps with identifying the snake.
I would agree with you - this snake definitely appears to be a gopher snake, including that dark crescent marking that wraps from jaw, over and through eyes, to other jaw. The snake will do a good job of keeping rodents in check around your house and garden!
