After class I decided to go on a short walk to my spot for Red-Bellied Snakes. I did not find any however I did manage to flip a young Blue-Spotted Salamander that recently went through metamorphosis from its larval stage. Not far from the salamander I managed to find an Eastern Milksnake that seemed rather docile while I was holding it. When I went to release it however it went to bite me a few times. The individual I found had a rather unusual pattern on its head for a Milksnake as most have a triangle shape on their head which the species name; triangulum refers to. The individual found had a more spotted pattern on the top of its head.
I'm Mac Marzolini and I created this blog for a variety of reasons, the first of course is to open a window into what is happening in my life (cause my grandmother reads this), but also to help myself catalogue some of my favorite photos from my many adventures.
