A collared lizard I captured in southeastern Kansas.

I remember the first collared lizard I'd ever seen and wow was it beautiful; it was a male in full breeding colors that approached me as I was sitting on a concrete slab. I was just sitting there and all of the sudden this beautiful lizard comes walking out of the grass and onto this concrete slab and only 5-6 feet away from me.

The photo on the left is a juvenile Western Ribbon Snake and the photo on the right is an adult Western Ribbon Snake biting my left hand. Later that evening I noticed my hand beginning to swell because of the mild venom that was injected.  Both were captured in southeast Kansas.

A pair of Brown snakes (male and female). The way the situation worked out was very interesting because I didn't know at the time one was male and one female when I caught them. I placed them in the same enclosure and a few months later I noticed 5 very small brown snakes in the enclosure. The female actually had more than 5 but some didn't survive the birth.

Here are two of three Rough Green Snakes I captured in southeast Kansas. I decided to house this one (first two photos) because it was the smallest of the three. It was a real delight watching this beauty feed on moth's, butterflies, and grasshopper's while in captivity. I kept an adult Western Slender Glass Lizard in the same enclosure and the two got along well with each other even hanging out in the palm together.

This was the first Flat headed snake I've seen. I caught this little beauty and another one 3-4 weeks later near a lake in southeast Kansas. The second one appeared to have recently shed and was stunning.
