When I moved to Florida ~1yr ago, I was thrilled because I had heard so many stories about snakes in Florida. You would have thought you couldn't cross the road without having to first sweep the snakes away.

I've been a year and hardly seen anything. I even emailed the herpetologist at the UF Museum of Nat. History and he told me the Gainesville area is pretty bare as far as snakes go. That seems sad, but it can't be worse than Indiana, where I'm from.

I've been to state parks during the day, and tried driving back roads at night and still I've come up empty handed here in Florida.

So I thought maybe I'm not doing something right. Wrong time of night, wrong roads, or something.

So, for those in the Florida region, can you give more specific locations for finding wild corns and rat snakes? If you're anywhere near Gainesville, can you be even more specific with road names or parks & preserves?

About the only thing I have found was a very dehydrated 18in yellow rat crossing a footpath at dusk last summer. There has got to be more than that!

I'm only in to photography and the thrill of the find. I'll leave it to the breeders to make them for the pet trade.
