I surf these pages looking for snake identification questions to answer. My favorite pastime is to go out into the wild and observe snakes in their natural setting (I never collect or harm any snake and no snake has ever harmed me). I especially like rattlesnakes, copperheads and cottonmouths and I travel to remote bluffs and swamps where I can find and enjoy these snakes in their natural habitat. Below are my live snake totals seen in the wild for the last two years.

My 2011 snake total to date (210 snakes, 1 venomous): 56 Orange-Striped Ribbon Snakes, 44 Northern Water Snakes, 43 Intergrade Eastern/Red-Sided Garter Snakes, 25 Prairie Ringneck Snakes, 23 Eastern Yellowbelly Racers, 8 Black Rat Snakes, 2 Midland Brown Snakes, 2 Red Milk Snakes, 2 Rough Earth Snakes, 1 Flatheaded Snake, 1 Osage Copperhead, 1 Northern Redbellied Snake (red phase), 1 Great Plains Rat Snake, 1 Speckled Kingsnake
