Red Bellied Snakes and Eastern Garters

Posted by Sonja K. at 7/12/2010 4:06:53 PM

This is a long overdue blog of some herping pics I took during my vacation over the 4th of July.

The first day my boys and I went out, we caught 28 garters and red-bellies in about a half hours worth of time - and saw many more that we didn't catch. It was awesome - even if it was but garters and red-bellies!

Here's a pic of our critter container that day - LOL

And several pics of some of our finds:

And now the Red-bellied Snakes... you will see there are multiple color phases in the area by my cabin where I take my boys to go herping. A number of the animals were in shed, but here are 4...

This is the "normal" coloration:

Hope you enjoyed! : )

The black red belly and the pink red belly get my vote.

Great pics!  Those red bellies are cute!  I like the pic of the two of them intertwined.

What fun! Love the red bellies, I'd love to have a few handfuls of those sliding around the back yard!

LOVE red bellied snakes! Where is your cabin at? If you ever make it up north here to Grand Marais I'd love some company for a herping adventure to find some ring-necked snakes. They're supposed to be around but seldom seen.
