    I have been studying Herpetology for over 20 years. I have done field work in CT, NY, VT, PA, NJ, MD, DE, SC, NC, and FL. I specialize in turtles, crocodilians, snakes of the genus Lampropeltis, and the herpetofauna of the coastal plain of the mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States. Some of my favorite places to view wildlife are the New Jersey Pine Barrens, the Florida Everglades, and the Delmarva Peninsula.

    I currently educate people on amphibians & reptiles through social media as well as in public programs.

    Please check out my facebook page :

    The largest education-based universal wild snake group on Facebook :

    Wild Snakes : Education & Discussion

    P.S. I am also interested in birds! I was heavily into birding for a few years when I was a teenager, and thanks to this forum, I am getting back into it.

  2. Eastern American Toad

    You got it. American Toad.
  3. Which frog?

    These can be tough. I believe you are slightly out of range for bird-voiced, so I'm going with gray treefrog. The second one is definitely a gray.
  4. Which frog?

    what county?
  5. Which Lizard?

    Eastern fence lizard
  6. Which frogs?

    Yup. Green Frog (Lithobates clamitans).
  7. Garter snake being eaten

    New Mexico Garter is correct.
  8. Mystery Green Frog

    Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea). http://www.herpsoftexas.org/content/green-treefrog
  9. Louisiana Frogs

    Eastern Cricket Frogs (Acris crepitans)
  10. This is a larval stage salamander, which can be notoriously difficult to ID. This is most likely one of the Eurycea salamanders, which include the three-lined and southern two-lined.
  11. Yes. Eastern Narrow-mouth (Gastrophryne carolinensis)
  12. any lizard EGGsperts?

    If you're on facebook, I recommend the following group. North American Native Reptile Keepers
  13. Snake & Turtle

    1. Plain-bellied Watersnake (Nerodia erythrogaster) AKA red-bellied watersnake. 2. Red-eared Slider (Trachemys scripta).
  14. New Mexico lizard

    Yup, Sceloporus virgatus.
  15. Which tree frogs?

    There are two identical treefrogs in TN, the cope's gray and the gray treefrog. They can only be reliably separated by DNA and listening to their call. These are one of those.
