HA HA HA HA.. just don't even bother !!! :P

Garter snakes.. salamanders.. toads, frogs.. little skinks .. the occasional bull snake, the rarely seen rattlers in the far southern parts of MN..

baaaasically, don't waste your time :P

I can't remember the last time I found something reptilian that wasn't super boring (on the previous list).. And I have lived in this general area my entire life..


Um.. if you wanna go mosquito hunting.. well.. this is a good state for that :P

I just recently moved from MN, if you mean a reptile store, there is one in Burnsville. It is called Leaping Lizards, they have GREAT HERPS! All kinds; skinks, monitors, snakes, and LOTS of amphibians!

Hope this helps!

Forget the loon, mosquitos are our state bird.

But in all seriousness, there are a few species of snakes to be had. I dunno if you'll get up this way, but where I'm at on the north shore up Highway 61 past Duluth we have both tiny ringneck snakes and redbelly snakes in addition to the common garter.

Down around the cities you might be able to find a few fox snakes or a bull snake, and maybe even a milk snake or a water snake. There should also be smooth green snakes around - check in the grass! Hognoses are a possibility too. And brown snakes but they're boring lol. Then I know there's a couple rattler species in the far southeastern corner of the state, and the black rat snake is down there too but I think it's really rare.

Another rare species down there is the blue racer. How fun would that be to find!?

Check out this link for all the info ya need. I love herpin' in mah homeland.

Did you find anything in MN? There are lots of fox snakes in the Mankato area.

Minnesota has a lot of great reptile and amphibian species.

Check out: www.herpnet.net

I have a 6' 4" bullsnake a couple years back. Found over 200 bullsnakes over the past 3 years.
