This was the first day we got to Pelee Island, as we set up camp we found a little toad then headed out to look for snakes then salamanders.
What a great first day we had, we checked out some spots and found my first Lake Erie Water Snake, in another spot we checkout out we were mortified to find a bunch of snakes stuck to the glue on some tiles. We rescued as many as we could including a few large spiders. This just shows that one has to always be aware of how they impact the natural world as many animals such as snakes could die as a result. we then put the tiles out in the sun for the glue to dry up.
Today the weather was not the best with overcast and rain so today was primarily salamanders but we also found some snakes and a Turkey nest.
Today we saw a large variety of new species for me such as the Blanding's Turtle, Fox Snake and the Northern Map Turtle. The Map Turtle Specifically as according to a study done by CARCNET; Map Turtles are suppose to be extirpated from the island... well we proved that wrong.
