    2019 Minnesota Herping! Lots of pics!

    Hello everyone, it’s been a very long time since I have been here... Nick by the way... glad to be back! Anyways, years ago I posted pictures and videos of my old 56”+ adult female Eastern Garter Snake... well... it has been at least 11 years since I had her, but I have recently caught her offspring and they all have gigantism... average adult female length of 3-4+ feet. I had two females give birth to a total of 125 babies... all above average length of about 5-7”. Also, some new color variations... as well as a new northern green morph which all of the green female babies are also bright green to olive drab in color... she also produced some “pink lemonade” colored babies... I am calling the new morph the “Aurora Borealis” morph!... Also found a half-albino Northern Redbelly Snake this year... here are some pics of this years summer of ‘19 herping!....

    Thanks my friend! I have been literally exploring every inch of Minnesota and trying to find everything haha. The locality where those larger garters were from seems to be an area in where the large females seem to occupy the apex predator level in this area.... not very many predators. I found three major hibernation sites with close proximity to each other aswell as about two dozen abandoned ant hill hibernation sites for rebdellies, baby garters, etc...
    When I get home from the Twin Cities I will post pictures of the green morph female, some of her babies and the half albino redbelly!

    Thats very cool! Here in Indiana there's not many places to go herping. There's an old bike trail about 1/2 a mile from where I live, surrounded by miles of wooded area.
    (I very rarely go there because of many homeless people in a set-up camp in the middle of the woods, and they're pretty sketchy)
