Blue-Spotted Salamander

Blue-Spotted Salamander This guy I found when I was camping.   He’s a cute little guy. This is a Blue-Spotted Salamander they are usually about 8-10 Centimeters and black with dark blue spots all over him.  He reminds me of a night sky.  These salamanders are typically found in the northern United States and parts of Canada but are not easy to find and are considered rare in some parts.

Green Vine Snake

Green Vine Snake This is a pet Green Vine Snake. (His name is Loki.) The green vine snake is a very unusual snake.  For instance they average about 4 feet  (1.5 meters) but only get a little wider than a pencil.  They are usually a light green color but when feeding can get a bluish pattern.  One way to tell a vine snake from another snake is their long head with a pointed snout.  They have a long flat head and rectangular pupils as well, similar to goats. The vine snake is not only fearsome looking but also fearsome acting.  They have what scientists call rear fangs! The rear fangs can inject a poison...
