I went on a day trip two days ago to meet up with some herpers in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The weather was absolutely horrible for reptiles and amphibians - cold and rainy - but we gave it a go anyways. Despite the weather, the day turned out to be great. Species found included Long-tailed Salamander, Black Racer, Northern Ringneck Snake, Northern Slimy Salamander, Northern Redback Salamander, Northern Two-lined Salamander, Spring Peeper, and this beauty, an adult Eastern Milk Snake. Strikingly patterned and relatively rare, these guys are surely among my favorite snakes.
