Every day I turn over all of the rocks outside my office in search of new insects. Once I found a salamander, but this is by far my most exciting find yet–a Northern ring-necked snake (Diadophis punctatus edwardsii)!! It was so small that for a split-second my brain thought “what kind of worm is that?” These snakes live in all but the very northwest region of Ohio and enjoy spending their days under rocks or other cover! I’m so thrilled to see one for he first time!
Any witches in the northwest ohio area?
