I know this isn't directly about mushroom hunting but how many of you guys enjoy getting close to and photographing snakes, lizards, turtles, salamanders, ect while looking for your mushrooms of choice. Now that spring is here alot of reptiles are coming out of brumation and I've been loving the gorgeous snakes I've been finding. Theres got to be someone else here that enjoys it too....right?

My kind of thread :cool: I love reptiles, especially snakes!

I found a bunch of these garters coming out of hibernation last week.

Oh, I love the orange striped ones! If I'm not mistaken those are the San Francisco garter snakes.

Thanks man, I love Black Rat snakes as well, cool find :cool:

That is a very nice example of Diadophis punctatus "orange belly ring neck"
Around here they tend to be more light though I've found a few jet black examples!

While they do share similarities i assure you the one in my photos is Pantherophis alleghaniensis "eastern black rat snake". When I find snakes I handle them and attempt to sex them so making positive identification is easy since I can see the belly scales and patterning. Rat snakes have checkered bellies and black racers have a grey/blue belly with no patterns.

I still handle all my snakes too.

And I thought I would never get bitten, but in all my 30 years of handling snakes, I got bit by a copperhead and almost lost my finger, two years back!

I had to get flown to Vanderbilt hospital in Nashville, and they hit me up with three vials of antivenom, at thirty three thousand bucks a dose.

My hospital bill was well over one hundred thousand dollars from this little mishap!

I didn't loose my finger, but it's pretty much useless now.

Goes to show you, that if you mess with nature, it will eventually get the best of you, no matter what!

I have handled some deadly snakes in my time, but I will never do it again!

That's always been a fear of mine too Allium. I try not to free handle the venomous ones but I definayely hook them and get close. I'm glad you're ok though....aside from the insane bill!

Those aren't mohawks, they're a highly evolved defense mechanism.  Unfortunately, these "mohawks" present a slight drawback when it comes to really good bugsex.  Then again, that's just all part of the fun.

Ok so I'm really curious about what people think of this pic I took yesterday after finding my first Chanterelle. I personally love it (duh) but I can see how others may not.

It's almost stunning to me how well it mimics my typical CEV on Cyans. Am I going mad? :smirk:

I used to own just about every snake that you could imagine!

Now I just catch them, view them for a bit, and then release them.

Snakes will always be my number one favorite animal!

putting animals in cages is like sending them to prison for nothing,  no crime,  just for being an animal,  such a human thing to do.

While I dont quite see eye to eye with you on this, i still appreciate your opinion.
I cant speak for everyone but all of my reptiles are treated with the absolute up most respect and love. Whether it's my king snake or bearded dragons they all spend more time out of their cage than in. When we are home we let them explore the house and backyard or When me and the fam go to the local parks we have either a snake or a beardie with us and they get fresh air and fresh grass and bugs to eat. Also all my reptiles are captive bread and I will not ever personally own a wild caught animal.

I actually sort of agree with you on this.

I only kept animals as a kid, and I haven't done it since.

But, as long as they weren't ripped out of the wild, and were bred in captivity, I don't see it as a real problem.

Lot's of people treat their animals better than their children, sad, but true.

Alright snake lovers I know this is only a tiny garter but he must have hitched a ride with the wood chips I gathered for my proposed myco-garden.  Cute lil' bugger - Thamnophis gymnopilussssss - Gym-seeking garter snake.  I let him go on my hillside.

Snakes are essentially a mobile digestive system.

I think we're open to all critters.  (Is that a Wallaby or a Roo?.... looks like he's thinking of kicking you in the ass.)

Was actually taking one last look at dry wood chips at the bottom of my driveway hoping to find one last mushroom of the season, and lo and behold... caught this Gopher Snake.  Two snakes in two days... I'm on a roll!

A small roo. The mother or father was laying down nearby. Its possible he was contemplating an ass-kicking.:lol:

Last year i was got really close to a koala as well, usually you just see them in tree tops. He was on the ground and magpies were swooping him, then he went on a tree and i got a photo.



EDIT:
I guess these are all over the world, but got a nice shot of a Monarch butterfly.

What an amazing butterfly (and great shot!).  My wife and I just visited one of their stopovers in Monterey, California. Hurts me that their numbers are dwindling.  They are truly the world travelers of the insect family.

I Didn't Want To Say Anything In The Other Thread You Posted This In, But That Is 100% A Water Moccasin, No Doubt About It.

I've Caught & Handled Wild Snakes Since I Was 6 Years Old, I've Handled Many, Many Water Snakes & Many Water Moccasins.

The Guys In The Other Thread Were Only Looking At The Head, You Can't Just Look At The Head, Body Shape Matters.

Water Moccasins Are Known For Being Really Fat, Having A Tail That Abruptly Gets Smaller At The End. Water Snakes DO NOT Look Like That, They Are Skinnier & Longer, & Have Tails That Taper Off Normally.

Edit: Also, In Your Picture, Part Of The Snakes Head Is Covered Up, It Has A Triangular Head Shape, Water Snakes Have More Of An Oval Shaped Head.

That snake does resemble a moccasin but Pennsylvania is way outside of its range, I think it is something else, but not sure.

Nope not a moccasin at all. Nerodia fasciata or banded water snake, harmless except for their temper and scare the shit out of me every time I see one. I grew up with moccasins and now live in an area they arent but there tons of these and I cant seem to remember that when I walk up on one still Haha

None Of The Pictures Of Nerodia Fasciata On Google Images Look Similar To Shroomhunts Snake In My Opinion. The Body & Tail Shapes Aren't The Same.

It actually is just a big old phat water snake. I never zoomed in when I first saw the pic to see the head. I just jumped to a conclusion when I saw that big phat body.

This being said, when threatened water snakes can flatten their bodies out like that to appear bigger, and I've seen this a million times.

I was drunk when I made my statement yesterday, just like I was drunk when I got bit by a copperhead a couple years back. This is why, when I'm drunk I make certain what I'm grabbing is harmless from here on out!

Being drunk was the only time I ever misidentified a snake, and it only happened that one time :grin:

Yeah im pretty sure it was a cotton mouth despite the fact they are not supposed to be found here. I used to hunt for water snakes when I was younger and its pretty easy to tell a pit viper from a water snake... im no expert tho

That's what I thought it was,  but I am not familiar with the serpents of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately,  people here mistake them for water moccasins and kill them.
Personally,  I like them all and will relocate instead of execution.

Lots of harmless animals mimic poisonous or deadly ones, to survive, but sometimes this makes things worse when dumb humans kill them thinking that they are deadly, when fact they are just harmless mimics :sad:

Found a plethora of reptiles today, but these three were the stars of the show!

This guy flattened out, and I so wanted to picture it to show how much it looked like a moccasin :facepalm:





Oh well, he was quite docile little fella, but he didn't like me much and he shit all over my hands :awepuke:


This guy had no chance! The water was to low for him to escape :grin:







And this guy!



I also found a pretty peculiar weed growing too, not sure what kind it is though.



And it wouldn't be right to not show some mushrooms :smirk:

I searched all day for mushrooms, and fished, but thew fishing was the only thing worth while:smirk:

Even after the damn tropical storm remnants that we had blow through here with drenching rain all day, it has been so damn hot and humid here that it didn't matter. The woods were as dry and as crispy as the desert :mad2:

Two dried up Chanterelles.



I believe this to be in the Amanita vaginata group.







And some critters!

These are all different fish.



















Until next time....

I know right! Dude, I put all the fish in that pond too! It took roughly four years to get the bass that size, this is why most of them all are the same size range.

That is actually a watershed to catch the drainage from the surrounding produce fields. It never had one fish in it before I started stocking it.

I started out putting several hundred small bluegill in it from other local creeks and ponds, and then I put a bunch of small bass, crappie, various sunfish, channel cats, mud cats, shiners, rock bass, and no telling what else, hehe!

I painstakingly walked all those fish out there in buckets through woods, and huge fields too, because there is no way to drive out to it.

The first couple of years you couldn't catch any fish at all, not one, then I started catching them the third year, and now every cast I caught a keeper fish today, it was Amazing!

Anyway, I miss Florida too, I lived in the panhandle for 12 years, and i miss it badly :sad: I could walk right out my door,and go catch freshwater fish, brackish fish, and saltwater fish all within a mile from my home.

I also lived in Central Florida, and I could do the same, but Central Florida had freaking tilapia, and all kinds of tropical fish that I would catch for my aquariums, damn, I really miss that!

I didnt care much about non mushroom taxonomy until about a month ago since I started posting on inaturalist.
I have found some pretty neat stuff the last few weeks!

Thamnophis elegans terrestris



Ensatina eschscholtzii a terrestrial salamander.



Anaxyrus boreas



Sceliphron caementarium



And what might be some sort of beetle larvae I managed to photograph despite having my eyeballs pelted with 1 billion MPH Sand.



I post all the shit I find here if anyone wants to see more / help me ID stuff.

Well I finally checked a spot I found a few months ago that just felt right, like had lots of oaks and poplar next to a creek....I was right and its gonna be a honey hole if we can get some decent steady rains.

The snake got a bit sick of me being around and decided it would be better off dealing with
the skink somewhere else, so I didn't see the outcome. It definitely was a privilege to witness.

Found a big batch of hen of the woods today, and this teeny tiny little fellow! He was smaller than my pinkie nail!

The hens were covered in dirt, and debris, so I didn't bother taking  a pic.

The mum and baby lamb were pretty shy. But dad was more than happy to be pet through the fence and devour whatever handfuls of juicy grass I plucked from my side..

Went To See My Grandmother This Past Weekend, She Owns Some Property Right Next To The SNF. Found Some Spiders & Some Other Bugs.

A Common Black House Spider


A Black House Spider Eating A Junebug


A Brown Recluse


The Same Recluse I Put In A Jar With A Roach. He Bit The Roach Once & Mr Roach Was Paralyzed.


Harvestmen


A Blue Dirt Dauber


I Have No Idea What This Guy Is (Edit: Mayfly)


& This One Is From Today (Back Down South), Some Kind Of Moth Or Something, Idk. (Edit: Giant Leopard Moth)


I Found The Brown Recluse When I Went To Take A Shower, Up There You Shake Everything Before Using It, So I Shook The Shower Curtain & Sure Enough He Fell Down & Started Trying To Crawl Up The Shower Wall So I Caught Him In A Cup.

Sorry About Some Of The Pics Being Blurry, I Had Trouble Uploading Them.

Dude, a few years back I was hunting mushrooms,and I walked upon a box turtle. Normally they get sacred and go up in their shell at my presence. However, this turtle just kept on walking, like I wasn't there, right up to a big old green nasty looking russula, and he took a big old bite out of it, paused for a moment, and then continued on his way. True story man, and I have never seen anything so awesome in my life!

Dude, I love insects, and arachnids to death!!! Check out this find that I found for a quarter at a thrift store! I especially love spiders,and I used to keep black widow females in big old mason jars! Keep the insects, and arachnids coming!





And this huge guy that I found today. Despite the fact that we finally got rain after a full month of drought and horribly hot and humid conditions, there are no mushrooms to be found in my town. All the woods are pretty much bare of all fungus,and I don't understand what's going on!

Killin it Allium! Hell yeah!

I havnt seen much of anything lately other than a metric fuck ton of baby toads and the same black rat I see in the same tree every time I go to the park. I'm spending the weekend stocking up on chants though so hopefully I see something.

I never expected this thread to become this!!! You've all far exceeded my expectations and I very greatly appreciate everyone that's sharing their finds  :youthemandawg:

:grin: I posted one of those baby toads a page or so back. There were hundreds of them when I found that one.

I actually did find a few pounds of Chants though, a few days back, only to find out that I have totally lost the the taste for them, so as sad as I am to tell you this, after one meal of them, I tossed all the rest in my compost pile. I haven't found any in a couple of years, and right now, there are tons out. Too bad my Morel season couldn't have been this good :smirk:

This thread is Epic, my most favorite thread to post in on the whole forum, so you have done a good job good sir :thumbup:

Well, no mushrooms today, and boy I searched! I'll probably just have to give up hunting mushrooms here, sadly.

Well, I did find one lone bolete that had the whole forest to himslef, but that doesn't count :smirk:




However, I did have a great day of fishing, and I found this guy :grin:







Fish #1



Fish #2



Fish #3



And this guy loaded down with pollen!



Oh,and I keep seeing all these really big strange weeds growing all over the place too!





More to come....

He's Camera Shy


Another Small Wolf Spider Chilling On Some Decaying Oysters


Edit: On Second Thought That Might Be Panaeolus Antillarum, However The Ones Like It That I've Been Seeing Have The "Twisted Stipes", Either Way I Just Leave Em Be.

No I've Picked Them & They Do Not Bruise Blue. I've Even Waited Past An Hour With No Signs Of Bluish Bruising. All Other Panaeolus Cyanescens I Find Bruise Bluish Within 5 Minutes Tops, Most Within A Minute. I Don't Really Know What These Ones Are.

Freaking far out man!


It was a good day :grin:

















The big fish weren't biting today, but I found a ton of Chanterelles around the pond when I had to go to take a leak!

I can't believe that I thought that I had lost the taste for these :facepalm: I cooked some up tonight in a rice dish and it was oh so divine :awesomenod:

It is a yellow jacket:thumbup: I'm actually allergic to bees and I almost died when I was younger when I got stung. I really need to be careful our in the middle of the woods, because if I get stung, Id never make it back home in time. Damn, that really makes me kind of scared come to think of it.

I just shifted it (very gently of course) from the rim of the shroom cap to the middle so I could
take a few shots before it moved away again. Normally I only notice them after laying out some
shrooms in front of a fan for drying.

That's a neat little toad!

Got out with the kids hunting chants this past weekend and almost stepped on a little Blind ground snake. The meripilus are out in force too!! I've never seen so many of these in one spot like I have this year.

That’s either a red belly or a dekays. Both are harmless. I’m leaning more towards red belly. Did you pick it up by any chance and see the underside?
