Thank you!Very nice pictures!
Very productiveI've read about amphibians and spiders cohabitating. Cool picture!
Love the hognoses doing their cobra imitations!
Looks like a productive day in the field.
The pattern on the box turtle was much more intricate and continuous than the others I've seen. It was sitting in a flooded field and the colors immediately popped out at me.Are Eastern boxes and hogs always so vibrantly colored? Cool to see the rough green in it's native environs...indeed, a good day!
Thanks Martin. We had some great weather for reptiles and amphibians this past weekend. Morning rain and then sunny and 70 degrees. Can't wait to see some Spring updates to your thread.wow, amazing... that turtle is absolutely gorgeous and of course the hognose snakes are equally as nice. Thanks for sharing! We had snow last Friday... looks like I have to wait some more!
Loch Raven--that looks like a cool place. I always keep an eye out for basking snakes. Rustling noises as snakes try to slither away are also a good give away. I really like to search along ecotones. If there are any open, grassy fields adjacent to water or woods, that would be great place to look. And of course, check under any cover objects. Good Luck!Headed to loch raven tomorrow to a marshy area. Any tips? Looking for snakes
Thanks Chad! Are you from this area?Nice! I used to always fish Loch Raven!.
Awesome shots and finds as always Matt! Those hoggies are unreal! Keep the pics coming!
