snakes in NY
Here's a site with interesting info on NY wildlife. At the bottom it has pictures of all the snakes. I thought it would be useful for identification, although even with the warm weather, I think the snakes are still sleeping around here.
PS - When it comes up, the page seems empty, just page down and there's the article.
Other pages in the site talk about frogs, turtles, etc.
