Yesterday there was a lot of activity. Pseudacris crucifer (Spring Peepers), Rana sylvatica (Wood Frogs), Ambystoma maculatum (Spotted Salamanders), Notophthalmus viridecens (Red Spotted Newts) were all in the Vernal Pools breeding. Also there were lots of Plethodon cinereus (Redback Salamanders), under rocks and logs. Flipping in the streams there was Eurycea bislineata Two Lined salamanders, Desmognathus fuscus (Northern dusky salamanders).
I found a 33 inch Thamnophis sirtalis (Eastern Garter snake) and 4 Coluber constrictors (Northern Black Racer) All were around 5 feet. 2 of them were about 5.5.

Does anyone else notice that the first snakes out for the year are generally on the large side? I guess that their large body size holds heat better than the smaller snakes.

Cheers,

Chuck
