DOR large adult collected by David G. Barker on Upper Cibolo Creek Road on 7/7/97. Prepared as a preserved specimen for deposit at TNHC.
DOR young adult on South Main Street (US 87). GTS 1868. Prepared for deposit at TNHC.
Apparently this snake was in a shed cycle - this affects the prep and appearance in preservative (speckled appearance is not normal).
DOR. Very sad. Pronghorns sometimes get caught on highways with fences on both sides and they can't get back into the open prairies since they don't jump fences, they go under them. If the animal can't find the spot where it entered the highway area, they sometimes get killed by cars.
roadkill observed this morning 7a, on County View road near the Cedar Ridge Preserve. It looks like it was crossing the road to get back to the Preserve when it was hit. Cedar Ridge Preserve runs adjacent to this Road
DOR young adult female on Sisterdale Cutoff Road (N. School Street). Very heavy bodied for the size (~40" TL). GTS 1950. Retained for deposit at TNHC.
A white-headed paradise shelduck was sitting on the street light above this fresh carcass.
Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US
I saw this dead snake on the road, stopped and took a couple of photos. I went up the road and turned around to come back and take better quality ones but the corpse was already gone. Within two minutes!
