Abstract

Snakes found, listed in order of abundance, were: Thamnophis radix haydeni, Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis, Elaphe vulpina, Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis, Opheodrys vernalis blanchardi, and Lampropeltis doliata triangulum. Pituophis melanoleucus sayi was found in neighboring Cherokee County. Two hybrids involving the genus Thamnophis were found. Eumeces septentrionalis septentrionalis was the only lizard found, and Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum the only salamander. Rana pipiens pipiens was the most abundant frog, and Pseudacris triseriata triseriata was the only other frog found. Bufo americanus americanus was the only toad found. Chelydra serpentina serpentina, Chrysemys picta belli, and Trionyx spinifer hartwegi were the only turtles found. There were no previous collections made of reptiles and amphibians in this county.
