I took this photo on a known Indigo site that has had general herpetological studies going on for 20 years now (although Indigos were not found by researchers on this site until 12 years ago because no one ever sampled in the winter). It's near Ft. Stewart on private land.
:I agree w/ you on the foto per se...but....a Georgia guardian out of the far SE...is always significant...me thinks!
:I recommend you calculate the Lat./Long. Coordinates for your sighting, plot it on a decent resolution map (ideally a 1: 24000 [7.5'] scale) & forward a copy of said data & a hardcopy to the Georgia DNR: "non-game wildlife section/Herptiles".
:If those personnel express surprise at your find, you should consider publishing a note in Herp. Review.
:Our own Dean A. is tied into the Georgia Guardian Gang & can undoubtedly forward your info to the folks that ought to know about your observation in detail.
:Thnx for taking the time to post it, C&B; JG
:DA thnx for the recent info. I'd say the disease risk issue makes using anything from captive stock a no-brainer = non-starter. Good to hear that people are thinking out of the box tho...
:DT; major bummer re your loss..where does it end?
:Mojo sends a hi to all, hes resting comfortably, recently shed w/ a fat ~ 1 m DoR Diamondback onboard...
