Orange-Striped Ribbonsnake (Western Ribbon Snake)
This long, slender snake is a type of gartersnake. Two wide, black stripes border a yellow or orange stripe down its back. Below the black stripes is a narrow yellow stripe. Often there is a yellow or orange spot on the black head. The belly is greenish or cream-colored, and it is unmarked. As with other gartersnakes, this species will secrete a foul-smelling musk from glands at the base of the tail when first captured.
