We only have the eastern ones here (this is just a very big one) and they're on the list of species at risk, along with several other snakes, turtles and other species. Around my house seems to be a hotspot for some of those species though, every year we see hognose snakes, Blanding's turtles and a couple of times I've seen 5-lined skinks as well.

Thanks! I'm not really much of a photographer but once in a while I get a lucky shot. This snake wasn't in a big hurry to leave so I laid down on my belly in front of it for some of these shots.
Beware of Mushers...They will suck you into their addiction!

If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion!
