I had a wedding to attend in Atlanta a couple weeks ago and turned up these outside of Norcross, GA.

Found several of these. Most were on the crawl after dark. Is it a Smooth earth?

Also, here's a nerodia of some sort found in the same type of hab. ID please?

Worm snake (Carphophis amoenus) and midland water snake (Nerodia sipedon pleuralis), I think.

Thanks guys! (I don't know where I got Smooth earth from.)

If T.o was that easily turned up I'd be sick and tired of them by now...instead of just sick and tired of chasing them (by now.) :lol:
