Poor guy was found dead. he must've gotten caught in the flood and drowned. Yes there was a huge storm and some areas flooded. Luckily my campsite was spared.
There's a pond right before you hit the Stanislaus River where I found a baby salamander last year. I went to check it out again but found this guy slithering. While I was chasing him there was a bigger guy. The big guy swam away and into some brush but I was able to catch this guy.
These weren't as common as the last time I was up here. But boy were they huge.
I didn't even see it and it was only 2 feet in front of me. It noticed me and jumped in the water. Good to see these guys instead of the usual nonnative red-eared sliders I've been seeing.
Hola, ayer corriendo me encontré esta pequeña y bonita serpiente. por desgracia ya estaba muerta y no traía mi cámara, así que la lleve a mi casa para tomarle fotos y con la esperanza de que me puedan ayudar a identificarla.
