Hi Matt, I have blanked the scientific name box (removed "Eastern garter snake) as this box is for the latin binomial name only. Where you know the species as in this case, please can you look up & add the scientific name. This is simple to do using Google. Because we have a global user base & sometimes many different common names for the same species, the system uses the scientific name to link similar spottings - which also means this may come up in the thumbnails on other spottings & more people may take a look & favorite it. Without the scientific name this will continue to show up as unidentified & you may get further ID suggestions from other users.
