Everglades, Miami-Dade Co., Florida. July 21, 2016.
I felt like I had a curse on me. Over all of the trips I’ve made to their range, I had never personally found a live Corn Snake. Oh, I had seen plenty of dead ones on the road, and I’ve been with others who have found them, and I’ve missed seeing several by a matter of minutes. For a long while I figured that one would eventually show up, but as time went by, I began to wonder what I was doing wrong. It took a trip to the Everglades for me to break the curse and roll up on this beauty one night.
