Coach whips in West Texas are a pale color, not black in any way. Sort of dirty brown or beige.

•The dorsal background color can be highly variable, especially in Masticophis flagellum testaceus, ranging from black, red, yellow-tan, and even pink.

•There are two subspecies of M. flagellum in Texas, each distinguished by its color pattern.


•Some people suggest that the more darkly pigmented border of each dorsal scale (especially noticable on the tail) gives both subspecies a braided whip appearance.

About 40 years ago I had a pinkish one about 6ft long run me out of a barn that me and some buddys were stacking hay bales in. I still hear about it when we are having a few cold ones! roflmao They are agressive for a NV snake. Thats my story anyway!
