That always sucks to see road killed snakes, but even worse when there is dead babies coming out of them or eggs scattered & flattened. Only once I was able to save a litter of red sided garters out of a big mom that was hit on a dirt road. I cut her belly open & poked the almost fully developed babies out of the hole through the hole I cut. It sucked, but it was kind of funny actually because a car full of people drove by & slowed way down with disgusted looks on their faces as I was poking my finger in this snake. They probably thought I was some sort of weird animal sex pervert,lol. I took the babies home to my incubator & a couple of days later there were 9 little red sideds ready to be turned loose.

Great bunch of pics! I especially like the middle red watersnake in the 1st group.

Keep those pics coming! Thanks
