Glossy Snake
(Arizona elegans)


The glossy snake is named for its smooth, shiny skin. They typically make their homes in sand or grass in the semi-arid grasslands they inhabit. As nocturnal predators, glossy snakes eat small mammals, birds, lizards, and even other snakes. They are not venomous but kill their prey by constriction.
