I unfortunately did not see a single snake on this entire trip, however I was very excited to come across a blue tailed skink! This beautiful juvenile will get quite a bit larger, but I do love how noticeable their stripes are at this size. I used to see these guys all over California when I was younger and saw one once up in Oregon!
julian is here with an announcement!!! i’m gonna be camping without wifi or data until the 22nd !! i’ll be posting again when i get back :-)!! (also don’t worry it’s just a bit of calcium powder on his nose i got it off right after the photos !!)
sometimes i have A Moment and i feel the need to buy an ungodly amount of house plants but i already have 19 in my room alone and i’m not letting myself get any more until i write myself a care guide on every kind of plant that i have
Milk snake (Lampropeltis triangulum) from the Mississippi delta in northeastern Mississippi. These snakes can be hard to come by in this part of their range, and this particular individual was out basking on a log one summer morning.
