Hi everyone! This is my first time to post on the coachwhip forums. It is a nice change since I spend most of my time on the venomous forums. Anyway, the last two Sundays I've gone out to one of the area lakes and I've found what seems to be a small breeding population of Eastern coachwhips. Within a area (25'X35') I have caught at least 5 adults over 5' long. This area is right next to a spillway and it seems that when it was built (I don't know when) the contractors dumped all their extra concrete in a little clearing just to the south of the spillway. Then they dumped a lot of soil on top of the concrete in hopes of concealing it. Since then the soil has settled and eroded leaving multiple holes leading underground. This situation is amazing to me. I've never seen such a concentration of large snakes like this. It may be a makeshift den. Or could it be that these snakes have made it their permenent home. I guess I'll have to keep on coming back to see. Has anyone seen anything like this? Or am I just too excited? I'd love to hear your insights. I could definately get into these guys. They remind me so much of the mambas. Just less dangerous. Russ
