I didn't expect to see much on today's hike, mainly because of the heat, but I was thankfully wrong. I saw my 3rd sand snake of the year ( :y: ) and my first tiger rattler of 2017 ( :D ) and first desert tortoise of the year ( :sweat: ) .

To get the best possible photos from my snakes, I will bath them in my hat so they can look their best during their photo shoot. Every snake deserves to be pampered once in a while. When I do this, I noticed that the snakes are drinking the water as well as getting clean. Here's two videos of my models getting cleaned for the photo session free of charge.

Long nosed snake (6/20/17):

Since I lack a 3rd arm, it's hard to get a good video of this. I obviously don't do this with the rattlers or coral snakes. I also don't do this to gopher snakes and coachwhips because their too skiddish.
