Unique Find in Central FL

Great time road cruising last night. Started off with several ribbon snakes and a couple nice banded waters.
Kept thinking that there's has to be a red rat out here some where.
On the last run a nice 30 inch red just getting on the road!
That inspired me to make one last run before it got too late.
Found this guy moving and was able to nab him just before he got off the road.
This like the 4th or 5th Mud Snake I have ever seen in FL
and the second live specimen. Most unfortunately are found DOR.
Extremely secretive snakes with a specialty diet.
Let us know what you're finding!

When we first moved here to north Florida, we used to find them quite often on the road we live on near a pond, especially during or after a rain. But haven't seen one for at least a decade now. Even with the heavy rains we've gotten lately, nothing....

nothing fancy getting found in Delaware , just a bunch of garter snakes when I cut larger lots . so much fun to stop the mower and watch them scurry to the nearest bush.
