Small rough scaled fossorial brown snake
I find them under anything anywhere
When my son goes back to Corvallis, I'll have to ask for an intro
We stayed with Richard F. Hoyer and his wife. Richard has been studying rubber boas (and a few other local species) since the 1960s. He is the nicest man you could ever hope to meet, and he has so many good sites for the boas, sharp-tailed snakes, and many other species. One location we visited was an old military installation/training area.
where in corvallis?
My wife and I traveled to Corvallis a number of years ago specifically to observe rubber boas in the wild. It was a spectacular trip!
Yes we do! I have never seen one in the wild, but rescued a juvenile from a couple kids and released it
Karen, you have rubber boas - the coolest snake species in the United States!
I will keep that in mind. Although I'm afraid I don't conceive of a reason to go to OK, as unfortunately, all my family is here, but I do appreciate the offer. Maybe someday I'll have a reason to randomly travel the US
If you ever come visit Oklahoma then message me on here and I could show you a bunch of them they are a daily part of life here
We have very few species available to observe here in Oregon
Thanks there my passion I love observing the in the wild
Wonderful! I love snakes.
