First herp trip of 2012!

Well I guess it didn't start out as a herp trip, but it ended up as one nonetheless. My wife and I went fishing and I spotted something on a tree in the water. Can you see him?

Low and behold! A Cottonmouth. Keep in mind, this was February 23rd! We were lucky enough to get some good pictures of him.

Also, we saw a good sized snapping turtle crossing the road, so we helped him get over.

We've had an unseasonably warm winter here this year so I guess it'll be a good year of field herping. Hope you guys are also having some good luck!

Yeah it was still pretty young - only 2.5-3ft so it still had some good color retained. Nice and photogenic!
