I went herping in southern Missouri once back in '96. It was at my aunt's house and by her farm was debris that hadn't been touched since the sixties! I turned over several pieces of debris and found an adult Speckled King and some Chicagoland Garters. I then went to turn over a promising piece of tin. I flipped the tin, and I saw a flash of pink. I think you know what I'm about to tell you! I went over to where the snake had dashed under and carefully lifted up the debris. WOW! A beautiful glowing pink, lavender and yellow striped garter just sat there in front of me! I could hardly pick the snake up! The next thing I noticed was the bright red eyes! Completely amelanistic! Then came a hard decision. Should I keep it? No, a tough decision but no. So, I carefully placed my little pink prize down in the grass and watched it slither away, contrasting against the green grass, completely vulnerable. Do you have any true stories? If you do, please e-mail them to me.
