Snake-A-Thon Part 1

This year for father's day my dad and I went on our own "snake-a-thon" to see how many different species of snakes we could find in one day in NE PA.

Garter Snake Eating Toad Video

Re: Pinesnake nesting, Timber combat, and more LECHing.

I love your account of the timber combat! In fact, I was just shown a video of the same behavior that my dad, uncle and aunt were lucky enough to see. The funny thing is that the winner did the same thing to my dad that the one you saw did to you! After chasing off the loser snake, he turned towards...
