My black masked racer Coluber constrictor latrunculus.
Did you steal that from a guy named John?
Yep like he didn't even know, I let his amphiuma go too
I'll get a current pic as soon as it keeps still. It's adult colors are becoming more apparent finally.
Rough green snake Opheodrys aestivus. Caught and released this little guy on the job this summer. One of my favorite species.
My diamondback terrapin Malaclemys terrapin pileata sitting on his turtle dock basking in my brackish water tank.
I get bored with the nerodia species we have, but I love the pics of the ones in other regions. I did see some cool looking northerns this summer in Mississippi, almost looked like copperheads in color and pattern.
Took a few snaps today while cleaning cages.
First two are retics right? I couldn't figure out the 3rd. Best gues was gopher or bullsnake.
1. False water cobra
2. Taiwan beauty snake
3. Bull snake
This guy was in my front yard the other day. Black Racer? We get a lot of snakes around here.
As you can tell I'm crappy with non-natives!
Glossy crawfish snake
Regina rigida rigida
we caught and released on the job today. Fairly rare to see around here. It was hiding in the stump in a flooded swamp we were doing vegetation assessments in.
LOL yeah it's funny because I know more about exotic species than a lot of natives. Especially nerodia. Most water snakes are tough for me to positively identify.
And they get really tricky because a lot of them will cross breed in the wild so there's some that share traits of two species, especially broad banded and northerns.
