|Around Little Rock, I've seen a fence

an anole, and redeared
I visited the Arkansas
Post National Memorial in October, which isn't too late to
find rough green snakes.
The last expedition was to Howard County in the southwestern
part of the state, in conjunction with the Arkansas
Fish & Game Commission and the Arkansas
Herpetological Society to conduct a herpetological survey of
that and surrounding counties. The picture at right is of an
abandoned poultry farm with plenty of tin sheets (blown off the
roof) which make perfect habitat for reptiles.
I was able to document two new county records (believed to
exist in these counties, but not officially recorded)--the midland
brown snake in Polk County, and the yellowbelly water snake in
Howard County. However, the water snake was DOR so I did not
include it on the site. Other reptiles found included ground
skinks and prairie kingsnakes.
