Wild caught Arizona elegans arenicola (Glossy Snake) from Hidalgo County Texas with SFD like symptoms When I go herping I always wear gloves in between animals.

Common Bird Snake

Juvenile common bird snakes are often darker than this individual. It was dark—rainforest dark– and rainy—rainforest rainy. I was trying to balance on a slippery fallen log that stretched over a newly freshened rivulet. Made it. Now came a rain-slicked slope about 30 feet long and descending about 15 feet. About half way down grew […]

Minnesota Leopard Frogs

This nearly patternless mutation was once known as Rana pipiens burnsi, the plain leopard frog. I stood ankle deep in waters still chilled by the Minnesota winter, listening to the yodels of distant loons, and hoping that in at least one of the flooded swales along this roadway I would finally find at least one […]

Southern Hellbenders

Eastern hellbenders may be strongly patterned or virtually devoid of markings. I was in northeastern Georgia, about a 6 hour drive from home, staring in awe at the natural beauty of my surroundings.
