    Default Pacific Gopher Snake

    Here is a cool little gopher snake that was found about a mile from my house. I am not sure what it is, but I sure like it!

    Very neat!
    Anybody know what the main differences between gopher snakes and bull snakes are?

    Is it just an east/west thing?

    Bull snakes tend to get a little bit bigger than gopher snakes . Bulls tend to be a little bit more robust also . Another observation is their heads . Bulls have a more stout and wide head . Gophers have a more slender and pointy head .

    Great find. I wish I can find snakes around me. I'm in northern NJ and all I find is raccoons and deers, lol.

    You actually have a large variety of snake species in New Jersey. The northern pine is in the same genus as the Bull and gopher snakes. They get pretty big also . 4 - 5 feet isn't uncommon. Tread carefully while looking for these though because the second biggest rattlesnake in the United States shares the same habitat . The Timber rattlesnake.
