    Rough green snake Opheodrys aestivus. Caught and released this little guy on the job this summer. One of my favorite species.

    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.

    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.
