    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.

    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.

    Those are bullfrog.

    Correct
  5. froglet

    This is a newly transformed toad, which are almost impossible to ID at this size.
  6. Pickerel Frog ?

    This is a Southern Leopard Frog. Pickerel frogs are surprisingly absent from most of the pine barrens.

  9. Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina)
  10. Eastern American Toad

    You got it. American Toad.
  11. 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.

    what county?

    Eastern fence lizard

    Yup. Green Frog (Lithobates clamitans).
