Three beautiful snakes from this weekend's fishing trip. A big Nerodia watersnake that I moved off the road. A gartersnake that was startled along the creek. A neonate Nerodia that was hunting minnows underwater.

We've had such a dry summer that I haven't seen many timber rattlesnakes. This yearling is the only one I found in a boulder field where I normally find many.

I've been seeing these little fellers all over the place. The first time I saw one, I thought it was a grasshopper hopping in the grass, but it's actually smaller than most of the grasshoppers around here! Blanchard's cricket frog (Acris crepitans ...

I'll probably be posting quite a bit, as I discover new critters everyday! I found this Antheraea polyphemus (polyphemus moth) in sad shape. I don't know much about their lifespan, but it seemed to be nearing the end of it. Still, it's beautiful!

We just got a litter robot and so far it is great. It came put together and all we had to do was check to make sure everything was as the booklet that came with it said to do. It takes up some area but not more than what we were using before. Will ...

The first of my two new snakes has arrived, this is an albino T. Radix, her soon to arrive friend will be a T. Sertalis Infernalis. These used to be really common in the UK pet trade, but sadly they have fallen out of favour and people prefer rat ...

'Extinct' for a hundred years again!

from Mike Strick, in UK. Every year in early summer, the stag beetles emerge to find mates. They have spent the first five to seven years of their life underground as larvae and now have just a few short weeks to live as adults. Every year I'm ...
