Stopped at a known population site to see if I could find one after searching for two hrs at a nearby location with all the correct habitat features. Conditions were optimal at lunch time. Temp's above 60, mild breeze made skin feel cool, mostly sunny for the preceding hr but clouds moving in from south. Found this short stout smallish, gravid female in 20 minutes. She moved as I was listening to a gobbler sound-off in the field to the north. The snake silently tried to retreat into crayfish hole until Mr. Pinchy slowed her down. That's when the buzzing began. The snake tongs are pointing at exit to crayfish borrow. She buzzed for more than five minutes then retreated into water filled mammal tunnel about six inches from the crayfish hole in the photo. Found crayfish shed nearby and sauga morsels too.
Sweet! That is a good catch! Had to be fun.
Yes, Mr. Pinchy caught the snake food!
Nice, much too cloudy lately to bring herps to bask, spent all day the foggy Monday searching for bog turtles, but no one was out.
what a sausage ! so did Mr. Pinchy catch the snake food too?
