Snake Road & Southern Illinois October 2-6. The trip went something like this:
The weather was all over the place, but that didn't stop many Western Cottonmouths from being out and about.
The only nonvenomous Water Snake I saw on this trip - a Yellowbelly.
A very dark Leopard Frog.
Colorful Cricket Frog.
A young Western Cottonmouth.
Bess Beetle pupa.
