I go out basically every weekend during the warm months so I thought I’d start a thread for people to post field herping and road cruising photos. Please keep this to wild snakes, lizards, and amphibians that you’ve found. Please don’t give specific locations for your finds.
The occasions when you see us with a snake in hand it’s because we were moving it off the road. We don’t feel the need to handle wild snakes more than required.
Last night was pretty productive. First four snakes posted are from last night’s road cruise. Unfortunately we also found 8 Gophers, a Nor Pac, and a Cal King DOR (Dead On Road).
