...title says it all. This season alone I have so far found: 3 alligators, 2 Yellow Rat Snakes, dozens of Gopher Tortoises and Black Racers as usual, and my first wild Eastern Diamondback, Pygmy Rattlesnake, and also my first wild Corn Snake. As for ''non-herps,'' I have seen more deer this year than ever, 5 wild hogs, some Wild Turkeys, and 2 Sandhill Cranes. I also went camping in April and stayed up all night listening to a Chuck-Will's Widow and some more Sandhill Cranes.

I'll see what else I find this year . This has been the best field herping season yet, and I first got into herping in 2009.
