The site is drying up, the tadpole pond that I was hoping to watch and see if hogs gravitated to, dried up before and toads could emerge. When I got there, there was one small cup sized wet spot with a handful of living tads, a couple had legs. I did the dispictable, for a biologist, and moved them. By noon, the pond was completely dry. No luck there.

As of now, there is no grativation to toads, tadpoles. Like their is to lizards and other prey sources.

From fecal smears, there is no question, some individuals are finding toads, at this time. They are just not moving to them.

I still question, how do these yucky snakes make all that blood in their mouths.


There were more neonates of the year,

And I observed the individual with the most black on its belly(med. adult female)

As I mentioned in a reply below, individual temps ranged from 97F to 106F. It was bloody hot(see pic) and all hogs acted very racer like and took off upon spotting them. Which is a bit unusual. So no good in situ pics.

It was so hot, I started looking in holes until this happened.

Best wishes
