    The water moccasin pix are really cool, thanks for sharing.

    I found the water moccasins by pure accident. I was driving through the Austin area and saw them when passing over a bridge. I turned out parked and walked down. They never even noticed me even though I was within 3 feet of them at some time.

    Yes the Green snake was awesome. I find one almost every year when I take a family trip to the Austin area. I hope to find another one this year.

    The shots were taking around the Austin or DFW area in Texas.

    While both are native to SE Texas, that looks like a rough green snake to me (still awesome!). IMO that long head is the give-away. The smooth's have a more round head.

    The treefrog looks to be a Grey or Cope's.

    Superb pictures by the way. Did you keep or return them to the wild? (I believe you said in a different thread the snapper is a CB).

    The smooth green snake would be likely at or beyond its range in the area in question and the rough green easily occurs in all areas. More pointedly, the scales look keeled, so I also would say it's a rough green.

    The treefrog appears to be an eastern gray treefrog. Most publications do not differentiate the Cope's and eastern, but a couple do, differentiating by the eastern having black borders to the dark blotches. In Cope's gray, the margins of the dark blotches are indistinct.
    The trend is to post names and numbers of "pets" here. That seems...um...bulky.
    23+ species of salamander
    28+ families and subfamilies of reptile, amphibian, and arachnid.
    Only one has a name. The Beast.

    Thank you both for pointing it out. I am not very familiar with green snakes. Only found a couple in my life
