Okay, sorry about that! Thank you ForestDragon!

Neat find! I have moved several of your spottings out of the Signs of Wildlife mission for you. That mission is not for the organisms themselves but what they may have left behind (scat, feathers, nests, shed skins, etc.). Make sure to read the mission description before adding spottings.

Sara - please update the scientific name to Thamnophis sirtalis. You can get this information from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_gar...) and then put the wikipedia link in the reference section. Thanks! :)
