Hi Michael, unfortunately Timbers are very hard to come by up here. In fact, the only real common snake is the black rat. There is however, a load of salamanders and other amphibians. There are also a few copperheads and a good number of garter snakes, but nothing to get really excited about. I am not saying you will not find a Timber, but I would be very surprised.

I can't speak for Ashville, but here in eastern nc we have plenty of timbers. Come out this way and we'll go.

Well, on the eastern part of NC they have the Canebrakes but they look different from the mountain timbers....
