What to find in CT

When the snow melts and I head out to find some local animals what will I be likely to find in Connecticut?

If you mean right after the snow melts, well you may find turtles, salamanders and frogs. Turtles often come out by late February or early march to bask if the day is a warmer one with lots of sun. Salamanders and frogs such as Spotted Salamanders, Estern Newts, Wood Frogs and Spring peepers are all early breeders. Garter Snakes are also sometimes active when in general still pretty darned cold outside, but again on those warmer, and sunnier days that pop up.

Not necessarily right after the snow melts, probably around May or so. What can I find here for snakes besides Garters?

My guess is that CT would have a lot of the same snakes as found in NY. I am not sure all of them would be present. One such as the Queen Snake might not be there, but many others would be. Here is a link to the NY State DEC herp map project that lists all the snakes in NY: NY State Amphibian and Reptile Atlas Project Click on the link for snakes on the page that comes up, and you will get a list of the snakes in NY.

Best regards,
Glenn B

I live in CT and here is what I have found so far.
Brown snakes, ringneck snakes, garter snakes, water snakes, red-bellied snakes (tiny little things), worm snakes, and copperheads.
I have also found several types of salamanders, turtles (including one huge snapping turtle), various frogs, and toads.
I still have never been able to locate a timber rattler but they are very rare in CT.
