I woke up yesterday morning to a crisp 44 degrees here in central VA. I had the day off so decided to look for snakes. As cool as it was I knew that when the sun broke above the tree line that it wouldn't be long before they ventured out to warm up. Headed down to an over grown wood pile on the corner of my property and was immediately rewarded by the presence of a decent sized amelanistic eastern hog. I snapped a couple of pics after picking it up and shot the attached video while trying to convince him to "play dead" again. The last half of the video is better than the first half.
