Long-Nosed Snake -   Rhinocheilus lecontei - A praticularly beautiful specimen from Southeaster Arizona. When night falls in the desert this beautiful snake emerges from burrows to feed on sleeping whiptail lizards. Whiptail lizards are lightning fast by day, but like many diurnal lizards become completely dormant at night, making them easy prey even for the relatively slow-moving Long-Nosed Snake.
