Re: Blackwater River State Forest?

I went twice a few years ago when we were vacationing at Navarre Beach and I only found 3 racers, but I wouldn't say that it's bad for snakes. It was just that I was by myself and had never been there before and really did not know the best places to look for what I was hoping to find. I went on 1 d...

Re: snake road this weekend April 15-17

I would like to go this weekend too but it depends on my son's sports schedule. I haven't heard from anyone who has been already. We had some really warm days in March followed by below average temps and lots of wind and rain last week (plus a few frost advisories), so who knows what it will be like.

Re: Coppers in mid TN??

If you're willing to go this far, try the southern part of LBL that's in TN counties. They're definitely abundant in the KY part. The heat and humidity is supposed to be back next week so I would think you would be almost guaranteed of seeing one.

I'm also frustrated because we had lots of snow this winter and a cooler, wetter than normal spring. So I thought I would be doing better by now. Your post is awesome, ...

I guess this means the next time I'm in Orlando I won't be able to look you up for herping. Judging by this post, maybe I should just cut to the chase and come visit you where you're living now (ha ha). Fantastic, too many favorites for me to even narrow it down. Thanks.

Todd,

I wish the hognose and milks were "common" for me here. I haven't found either one of those in a few years. Usually the rats are common for me, but I've yet to find a live one this year. I think I've found 5 DOR rats so far. Nice shots, thanks for sharing.
