Took me awhile, but finally found it hidden in plain view.

Re: Eminart's 2017 Herping Adventures

Awesome find! Where'd you find it? This species (though different subspecies) is at the top of my find list this summer, but have had no luck so far.

I have a little secret patch of woods right in the middle of Huntsville. These black kings are probably the snake I find there most frequently, other than garters snakes.

Re: Eminart's 2017 Herping Adventures

Excellent find! I always love seeing wild kings. It's crazy how our Eastern Black Kings look so much different. Then again, I'm right where their range meets with Speckled Kings.

Re: Eminart's 2017 Herping Adventures

I had a little herping fun this morning.



This guy was the highlight of the morning, and what I was actually looking for.

Crotalus horridus




Not a herp, but I do like arachnids.
Vaejovis carolinianus


I saw a few million fence lizards, almost as many northern slimy salamanders and a couple skinks. Not a lot of good photos of them though.
Sceloporus undulatus


Found a couple of these guys.
Terrapene carolina carolina


And, a common snake around here, but still one of my favorites.
Lampropeltis getula nigra

Re: Eminart's 2017 Herping Adventures

I took a little side trip and drove down some roads in a nearby wildlife refuge on the way home from work today. I just found one snake, but that made it worth the trip for me.

Pantherophis spiloides (Gray or Midland rat snake). Gotta love their attitude.
