While working at Pawsitively Pets, the kids got to go on a field trip to Mountsberg Consetvation Area where they got to see the raptor rescue and got to go dip netting for frogs and aquatic insects. The kids managed to find many Northern Green Frogs though with the heat not many other reptiles or amphibians were out except for one turtle of unknown species basking in the middle of the reservoir. After work I headed to one of my herping spots to see what I could find. I ended up finding two Dekay’s Brown Snakes under the first board, one brown the other more grey. The second board yielded nothing but the third had a beautiful Dekay’s Brown Snake with a brilliant white stripe running down its back. Before going home I quickly visited my Red-Backed Salamander spot but while I did not find any salamanders, I did flip a few Eastern Garter Snakes for some reason.
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.
