Opheodrys aestivus aestivus by michael-ray Opheodrys aestivus aestivus by michael-ray
Opheodrys aestivus aestivus - Northern rough green snake - Sebastian County, Arkansas.

I found this individual stretched out across a branch along a path behind a small lake this afternoon.

These guys blend in. I'll post a pic tonight or tomorrow of it how I actually found it. I usually do 2 full days of herping a week plus a couple hours any other days I can get out, so I definitely put my time into finding stuff. Haha

Actually...we do a bit don't we? I jsut realised I've found all in my neighborhood: Garter snakes, pacific tree frogs, bullfrogs, red-legged frogs, this yellowish medium sized frog, rough backed newts, salamanders, aligator lizards... That's all I Can think of. XD It just rains so much, and I never know the best time to go look for them

Alright then! XD Like looking under logs and trees and stuff? Maybe I'll have to try some herping tomorrow. I think I'll do more looking around on herping and stuff. XD I love herps so much, I can just never find them.

Under rocks is the best place. Especially flat rocks, maybe a foot or two across. Out of the 40 something herp species I've found this year, a large percentage of the ones under cover have been flipped.

I got other shots of him gaping his mouth at me. None I'm really pleased with though..

Yes, you mustn't reveal his true, developing Dendroaspis identity. I gotcha *WINKWINK*

Very lovely snake, and a very nice capture- he's almost glowing with color, and that eye is a very nice focal point.
