Amphibians, Reptiles, And Opossums… Oh Dear!

I love wildlife. πŸ˜€ Here is a sampling of what I’ve seen:

Box turtle bathing in the mud hole.

Ribbon snake in the leaves.

Salamander in a dustpan – I found this little guy under my cat’s water dish, hiding from my cats. So naturally, I rescued him and took photos.

Lizard lounging on logs.

Frog just hanging out.

Phillip the opossum. He visited enough that I gave him a name.Β πŸ˜‚

Oh dear…

Literally. When my mom went outside to get the newspaper, she was greeted by a herd of deer. There were four, but I only got close-ups of three before they ran into the woods.

I wonder if they were saying, “Oh, humans!” πŸ˜‚

    • Thank you! ❀

      He wasn't poisonous and I had a 50x zoom, so I wasn't too afraid of this snake. πŸ™‚ Now if it was a poisonous one, that would be a different story… πŸ˜…

      Aww, haha, wow. I never tried to bring a snake inside, but I was the same way with other creatures such as frogs, salamanders, and turtles… πŸ˜‚

      I live in Arkansas. πŸ™‚ I've seen several kinds of snakes here, but the Ribbon Snake and the Green Grass Snakes are probably my favorites to see because they are usually small and they aren't poisonous. πŸ™‚

  1. A few days ago, my mom came in my bedroom and told me there were three doe and a buck in the woods in our backyard!! I wasn’t able to spot them from my window, haha, but I think it’s cool we have deer in our woods. πŸ™‚ These were lovely pictures! I honestly get excited every time we find a turtle in our backyard; they’re fun to watch πŸ˜€

    • Ooohhh, how cool! πŸ˜€ I’m sorry that you didn’t get to see them though. I have yet to get a photo of a buck, but I did spot a young buck in the woods once, rubbing his antler against a tree. I went back later and an antler was on the ground. I still have it on my desk. πŸ™‚

      Thank you! ❀ Me too! πŸ˜€ They are fun to photograph too if they will stay out of their shell long enough. XD

        • πŸ™‚ It was so exciting! I think it’s about that time of year now for them to lose their antlers. Be sure to look for trees that have bark damage from the deer rubbing their antlers on it and then keep an eye on the ground around that area – you or your brothers may stumble upon one too! πŸ˜€
