Possibly Desert Striped

The Audubon guide (pg. 631) notes that the Striped Whipsnakes (M. taeniatus ssp.) can be reddish brown (check), with 2 light lines on each side (check) and large head scales edged in white (check). Desert Striped (M. t. taeniatus) is dark brown and has white side stripe divided by a black line (check).

(BTW: check = photo shows characterisitc)

Hope this helps.
