TLC "Identifications" at your service..
The other day, I received a text from one of our volunteers. There was a picture attached, and it said--
"Any idea what kind of snake this was? It was in my yard this morning"
This is a common email/text that we get from our TLC volunteers--and we're always happy to identify the newest thing they found in their yard!!
After consulting with my handy reptile guide book, because snakes are one species that I actually avoid meeting at all costs, I believe that we are looking at a Eastern Garter Snake. Any suggestions/corrections are welcome!
Just think--in addition to helping TLC spread their mission, as a volunteer you have quick access to the TLC staff as your in the field identification. Help us today by contacting our office at: 610-347-0347 ext. 101 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime--watch where you walk in case you find yourself toe to face with one of the 21 species of snakes native to PA.
