I’m fine with other reptiles, like lizards, turtles or alligators (although I do give alligators plenty of space for obvious reasons). And despite what the 1974 Jim Stafford song stated, I don’t have a problem with spiders. Spiders are cool.
I’ll still take a photo when I see a snake on one of my photo hikes. But I prefer those photos be taken at a distance.
This gallery includes a number of photos of reptiles I’ve encountered during photo hikes. I’m pretty sure I have the snakes properly identified, although I don’t have a photo of a copper-mouthed water rattler. I haven’t attempted to identify the different species of turtles. And an alligator is an alligator.
I add a new featured gallery the first of each month. The numbers in the gallery title represent the month and year it was featured. Previous featured galleries are in the archives.
