Description

Took a short trip to South Jersey with a friend today (unrelated to "snake business"), and convinced her to take a little detour on the way home past a spot where I had found a few Timbers 20-some years ago. Found this beauty within 5 minutes of getting out of the car! I was jacked up beyond description to find this one so easily and that the population was still extant after 2 decades, and my friend - she was (inexplicably) less than thrilled, haha!

Attempted the "New Jersey Lizard Challenge" last week - an attempt to see all 3 species native to the State in one day (no easy feat), and *crushed* it! Saw several Plestiodon fasciatus, Scincella lateralis, and Sceloporus undulatus (see additional photos) while poking around in Atlantic and Cumberland Counties. This little beauty was observed in the vicinity of Port Elizabeth, Maurice River Township, NJ. With Tianqi Huang, Pete Danch, and Masahiro Fukura.

Redbelly Snake Storeria occipitomaculata

Description

Young adult female. Uncharacteristically, I didn't identify to subspecies this time as I recently heard through the "herpvine" that Storeria occipitomaculata has suffered the same fate at the hands of the "Lumper/Dumpers" (slang for Molecular Phylogeneticists playing "let's make believe we're Herpetologists", haha!) as the Kingsnakes, Ratsnakes, and dozens of other genera with the elimination of the 3 former subspecies. I'm looking into the matter now, and will keep interested parties posted. This little beauty was observed with Tianqi Huang, Masahiro Fukura and Pete Danch. Vicinity of Port Elizabeth, Maurice River Township, NJ.
