A lot of tough steaks in that old dinosaur....one of the reasons I hate fishing the rivers around Savannah...

Those critters look at us as fish bait.....glad we have our local animals and reptiles...

Our snakes and bears are begining hibernation...saw a cotton tail in the rear yard tonight...didn't scare me one bit...no worries, mate!

I've seen garter snakes basking in every month of the year. Even on top of the snow.

Huh- never seen that one either. Seems they would be easy pickings on top of white snow.

You would think so. I guess they stay close enough to cover. They're pretty cold-tolerant. I've seen them quite active (as in, still wiggly and active enough to musk me) down into the 40's.
