Herps and Other Things

The following images are some of the snakes we found during the weekend. In order from left to right, and top to bottom: Southern Ringneck Snake, Juvenile Banded Watersnake, Juvenile Banded Watersnake, Yellow Ratsnake, Banded Watersnake, Cottonmouth, Redbelly Snakes, Eastern Kingsnake, Rough Green Snake, DOR Canebrake Rattlesnake, Black Racer, Cottonmouth, Cottonmouth head, and Scarlet Kingsnake.

The best snake of the weekend was the Scarlet King which Hope found.

The most unusual herp of the weekend was this Lesser Siren which Win caught.

This Bowfin fingerling bit Ellen's finger.

While cruising, I often brake for some unusual critters, such as this snail. This earthworm looked like a new born small snake.
I pointed out this Chain Snake to Ellen, who remarked that it must have recently shed since it was so shiny.
