March 26, 2016: Plains Garter Snake

This Plains Garter Snake was found just west of the Upland Trail's south trailhead.  The similar Eastern Garter Snake has the lateral line on the 2nd and 3rd row of scales, while on the 3rd and 4th row on the Plains.  Both species are found at the Park, although I believe that the Plains is the more common one. 3/26/16 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
