Yes, Great Basins are gorgeous.

I caught my Great Basin Gopher snake on 18 May 2002 in Harney County, Oregon, in the next town to the south of mine, approximately one mile from my house in a straight line, but slightly longer when driving on the roads.

I was at a yard-sale when the snake crawled over the foot of the girl handling the money, giving her hysterics. I approached the snake, ascertained that s/he was indeed a Gopher snake (and not a Rattlesnake), picked him/her up from the lawn, and took the snake home, before they could kill it.

My snake, Go-Go, has grown from about 3-1/2 feet to about 4 feet long (the length of the 55 gallon acrylic tank where I keep Go-Go). The only difficulty that I have, is that this snake is a very finicky eater (wont eat F/T); most recently ate 2 miceon 7 Jan, and 1 on 17 Jan.
