Last week the Bio department of Florida Tech went to the everglades for a weekend of camping. Here's some pix of what we found while there:
Southern Leopard Frog
Cuban Treefrog (and the squirrel again)
That cornsnake on my arm
Of course, there were also a ton of gators and birds. These pix are all from saturday night. I did miss the best subject of the night, which was a large pigmy rattlesnake. It was my first time herping at night and I somehow stepped on it, but for some reason he didn't bite. Lucky me!! I was able to identify it after it hid under some brush that we could see through. I also missed an Eastern Garter that was just way too fast.
