Thamnophis marcianus (Colubridae) is a species of gartersnake unmistakable by its dark checkerboard pattern running entire length of body.
Thamnophis marcianus is found in southwestern US, northern and east-central Mexico, and Central America.
It is a non-venomous snake, Thamnophis marcianus will often bite would-be captors, leaving only superficial bite marks. Another important defensive mechanism of the checkered garter snake is the habit of defecating foul-smelling liquids upon aggressors [source].
