For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by reptiles. Snakes are a particular favorite of mine, and Florida is a great place to see a lot of snakes in the wild. Here are a few of the beautiful snakes I found in Florida. Most were just moved safely off of the road; though the diamondback was spotted at Corkscrew Swamp and the Burm was humanely euthanized as invasive pythons are a huge ecological concern in Florida.
Gartersnake
Banded watersnake
Glossy crayfish snake (a species I'd only ever seen in books, previously)
My first wild Eastern diamondback rattlesnake
Burmese python
Ribbon snake
And a beautifully light colored banded watersnake

My chickens are confined to their run, large as it may be. All to protect my garter snakes & salamanders. There needs to be a market for python boots.

Reptiles ... (especially alligators), one of the main reasons I moved here to reptile (and insect) heaven !

the garter snake has a blue tint on its side I guess there are sub species . We have lots of eastern diamond backs in eastern NC .

Yes, there are so really neat looking species and subspecies in that genus! I used to see blue tinted gartersnakes out west, in Washington state, when I was a kid.
