    big old RES(?) in middle of road

    How about this guy in the road today? I should have gotten a face profile. He's quite handsome. No red ear either. He's ~9" long.

    zombie fungus in King snake?

    Dang, just now, possibly the same snake crossed my path in the driveway. Looked a bit fatter as one might expect if it had just eaten another snake.

    zombie fungus in King snake?

    Ah so! When i went back a few minutes later, it was gone. Glad the king snake is OK. Don't think i've seen a ringneck before.

    zombie fungus in King snake?

    I saw this little guy all tied up in a knot. He was writhing around occasionally, and chewing on his tail.

    I should say, mid-60s during the day but cooler when the fire goes out.

    Bolted lettuce?

    Yes. Here in Zone 6B i can usually eat lettuce until early summer but seldom much beyond that, even under pretty ideal soil and water conditions. Not only do they want to go to flower, but the central stalk shoots up and turns bitter, and the new leaves become very small, thicker, and to some...

    I dunno... I have 2 adolescent boxies, and in cool weather, the younger one usually prefers the warmer side of the enclosure (closer to the wood stove) whereas the older one (whose enclosure is farther from the stove already) usually gravitates to the farthest side which might be in the mid 60s...

    Yes, unless one had an elaborate enclosure that had a 40 F section on one end, and 70 on the other, they do not have much range of CHOICE of what temps to gravitate to. So the main danger is that they will lose too much weight because they are not eating, yet not brumating either? What if one...

    But, but, but ... Where i live (north-central Arkansas where the 3-toed boxies roam) in winter the temps vary quite a lot. We may have days in the 70s for periods, on rare occasions it might even hit 80. We usually have cold spells where it is sub-freezing for weeks. This morning it was below...

    boxie in road end of Nov.

    Yeah, it was 70 here yesterday evening and sub-freezing this morning. However until yesterday afternoon i don't think it had been above the 50s for weeks. I saw that turtle late morning yesterday.

    boxie in road end of Nov.

    I normally never see them this late. I've lived here 25 years.

    boxie in road end of Nov.

    Very strange. I'm in rural north central Arkansas. I haven't seen a wild boxie in maybe a couple months even on warmer days. Not on my land or the road. Recently we had about 10 nights of hard freezing in a row. Today i was driving back from Mtn View on 66 and saw a youngish boxie, maybe 8-10...

    My FED-EX story. Let me vent!

    A few weeks ago I had a small package falsely reported as Delivered by Fedex. When that happens, they are not really set up to help you, the addressee, in a streamlined fashion. They don't just take your tracking number, they need all kinds of details about the vendor; his height , weight...

    Lost Hermann found after 9 months!

    Great news but where I live I would wonder, which animal ate that? A rat, possum, raccoon, wild box turtle? You might set up a trail cam near this bowl to see if it is really him, and which direction he's traveling.

    pair of 3-toed in my yard

    I hope i didn't violate community standards with that lusty image. At least these frogs aren't slam-bang when they do it.
