Why should beautiful sunsets and cute birds get all of the glory!

This photograph of a Prairie Lizard taken was recently chosen by the Missouri Conservationist magazine as the winner of the Reptile and Amphibian category of the 75th Anniversary photo contest.

I need your help to take best of show, so if you’re a Missourian and like reptiles go here http://mdc.mo.gov/node/16689 and vote for the lizard.

NORTHERN FENCE LIZARD

Their average total length is 5 inches so I had to get very close and be very patient to snap this lizards profile. They are grayish-brown with dark markings across the back and tail. This is a common forest-dwelling species that often lives around country homes and rock gardens. Their choice of split rail fences and stacks of firewood as places to live gave this species its name. They can escape capture by running up a tree.  I hope every one enjoys this weeks wildlife photo, stop by again real soon.

Black Rat Snake.

Black Rat Snake.

I found this Black Rat Snake making its way through the leaf cover on the forest floor. After I startled the snake it climbed a rather small nearby tree affording me an opportunity to take this photo . Black Rat Snakes are non-venomous but may bite if handled carelessly, however, the ones I have encountered took to handling quite well and did not bite. These snakes are relatively slow-moving and range in size from 32 to 72 inches, I have encountered specimens in excess of 6 feet. Rat snakes are our friends and help control the rodent populations.
