Description

Gloyd and Conant (1990) report examining subadults and adults that were 33.5-71 cm in total length. Nikolsky (1916) mentioned that some individuals may reach to as much as 78 cm in length. The body is relatively stout and the snout is not upturned.

The scalation includes 23 rows of dorsal scales at modbody, 149-165 ventral scales, 32-48 subcaudal scales and 7 supralabial scales.

The color pattern is variable, but generally consists of 28-45 dark subquadrate dorsal blotches or crossbands that usually extend down the flanks as far as the first or second scale rows. Between these blotches are irregular light areas. A dark brown to black postorbital stripe is present, extending from the eye back to the angle of the jaw, outline above by a light line and cream-colored supralabial scales below.
