Great Basin Gopher Snake

Great Basin Gopher Snake

The Great Basin Gopher Snake is locally called the Bull Snake. This non-venomous snake is an impostor. It has the ability to mimic a rattlesnake by flattening its head to a triangular shape and inflating its body to appear larger. It can even imitate the sound of a rattle by vibrating its tail in dry grass, leaves, or loose gravel.
