Yeah, I've read tonnes of field guides from new to old (Heterodon contortrix contortrix to Heterodon platirhinos :P).

I do a monthly soil change, 15 gallons of semi-fine soil from an area that I find both easterns and southerns in, the soil is the same through the entire area of about 300 acres. It does get dirty over time. I have tried wetting it in the past (just a bit) to try and make it more damp but then when it dries out it packs like most of the forest-field areas around here. I have got some "burrowing" out of my male eastern by using turkey-oak leaves but he just burrows into the leaves and still doesn't really go under ground. I tried gradually induced brumation as well to try and trigger hibernation and yet again, only goes under a flat-rock, doesn't burrow.

Also I would like to post some pics every now and then, I have been trying to get this forum to work with that but it just won't for some reason, I get as far as finishing the upload then nothing. I check the folder I made, search the name I gave to file, search the files original name, nothing comes up. Might have to resort to using links.
