Guessing the Snake Line Up

Postby Jen » Sun Aug 29, 2010 4:21 pm

This photo is from Bill Love's Website -
He went on a herping trip and found quite a few DOR. All of these snakes are endemic to the Gulf Coast and New Jersey Regions of the USA. All DOR specimens were collected and sent to the Florida Museum of Natural History. I think it's a beautiful shot. Can you guess the animal, left to right (number 1 - 15?) I've only managed 6 so far :oops:
I'm sure many of you out there can do better?
1.1.0 Epicrates cenchria cenchria
1.1.0 Corallus hortulanus
1.1.0 Heterodon nasicus
1.1.0 Trimeresurus puniceus
2.2.0 Trimeresurus albolabris

It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
