Pacific Gopher Snakes (Pituophis catinefer catinefer) Video Elizabeth Sharf

Park visitor Elizabeth Sharf took this extraordinary video on the north side of Cesar Chavez Park. It shows two Pacific Gopher Snakes (Pituophis catinefer catinefer) mating. We can see a fair amount of animals mating on TV and YouTube. Most of their intercourse seems empty of joy. Bird sex is a matter of a second or two. Lionesses being mounted don’t look like they’re enjoying it, and sometimes they’re getting mauled in the bargain. Baboons in the zoo do it quick and dirty. I haven’t seen any mammals other than us featherless bipeds who can show anything resembling passion, enjoyment, or love in the act of carnal coupling. What a revelation, then, to see a pair of snakes — animals that we think of as cold-blooded, incapable of emotion, remote from eroticism other than as a metaphor — give a master class in passionate, loving sexual intercourse. How affectionately they rub their heads together! How they twist their entire bodies into a braid! How they clench and then explode! This is better sex than most people ever have. This video requires a total reset of our thinking about snakes. They’re hot!
