    These are both good identifiers, though I’d rely on the eye stripe as being more conclusive. Copperheads are often found in more upland locales but they like water too, and I’ve seen cottonmouths miles from the nearest waterbody.

    I stay completely out of nature during the summer unless you count the golf course. Absolutely love being in the woods when it’s cold, though

    I did GIS work while in school at MSU. Spent a lot of time in the cotton fields and in ArcMap. Crazy that was 15 years ago.

    Was in Panacea, FL last week doing some social distance snapper fishing and scalloping. Went for a sunset bike ride and happened on these two friends. At first I thought it was a Garter, but it was thicker than any Garter snake I have ever seen. From my googling, I landed on Gulf Salt Marsh Snake. Owsley ? Thoughts? Gator was a juvenile/baby in a drainage ditch. Maybe 2-2.5 feet in length. I called FWC and Animal Control and they said they don't come out unless the gator is 4 feet or larger. Other side of the road was a tidal marsh, so I assume momma and dad were over there.

    Yep, gulf saltmarsh snake is correct. Nice find and good job on the ID. These guys are in the same family (Nerodia) as our more commonly seen freshwater water snakes. These guys eat much more invertebrates than other water snakes, often hunting when inverts become stranded/more exposed during low tides.

    Assuming you’re in/around Kansas, it’s a prairie king snake. There are several subspecies, but this is the nominate form (Lampropeltis calligaster).

    Moved a blanket that had been sitting on a trailer. Found some eggs that fell out, and then saw the blue tailed skink that I presume laid them scurry off. 2 on the left appeared to be beyond saving, sadly. But replaced the rest in the blanket and folded it over so hopefully they will be safe.

    No, he didn't see it until it was flying through the air

    It was still alive, but struggling with moving its back end
    I moved it over to an empty lot, hopefully it survives

    Owsley Ran into these two guys overnighting on Sipsey this weekend. Neither made it because we ID'd them as a rattlesnake and a water moccasin. Hoping we were correct on both. Rattlesnake was right on the trail and the moccasin swam into our campsite.

    Deleted images.
