Eminart's 2018 Herping Thread

I guess I'll start another one of these. I really haven't been out much this year so far, but I do have a few photos I can share. I'm a snake man at heart, and am guilty of passing up lots of turtles, lizards, frogs, salamanders, etc. but I do get a photo of them sometimes, if they really want to be photographed.

Anyway, here's the photos I have so far:

Black Racer (Coluber constrictor)

Not a good photo, but I thought it was cool to see a gray rat snake (Pantherophis spiloides) doing what gray rat snakes do.

Yellow Bellied Slider, maybe?

Midland or common water snake (Nerodia sipedon pleuralis)

I believe this is a young Lithobates sphenocephala (southern leopard frog), but it might be a pickerel frog.

Fowler's Toad (Bufo fowleri)

Black king snake (Lampropeltis getula nigra)
