Description

This record gleaned from the pages of "A Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians" by Roger Conant in the Peterson field guide series. I had a 1958 copyright edition of this book as a teenager, and still have it. In my younger years I wrote the location and date where I saw certain species directly onto the pages of this book, and thus the information to provide this record comes from that. The first 6500+ records I posted on iNat had photo documentation, but now I am posting these records which do not have photos just to provide the data point for the species and location as best as I can for the historical record.

This is the third unique Queen Snake that I've found in this area. She was a bit angry at first but after handling for a bit she calmed down.

Description

I went back to a place we found an injured baby Queen Snake and found this gorgeous Queen Snake under a rock. This absolutely made my day! A park ranger stopped just as I was discovering it and he even gave me permission to handle the snake, as it was his first time seeing one. These snakes are considered an endangered species in Pennsylvania so to find two of them in this particular area is very good news.
