Yea I had the same issue. I went with aboreal because the stereotypical photo shows them in trees and both typically live in trees at least a little bit.

Yea I went with arboreal too because the proctor was from Alabama which has the rough skinned species :lol: .

That is an excuse that doesn't butter my eggroll.

In all honesty though that was less of an excuse and more of an observation of how I carelessly left things to chance.

I found this snake in my backyard. I think it is a lined snake(the genus Thamnophis) but I might be wrong. Anybody wanna double-check? Thanks

I concur (unless it's a weird rat snake or something like that, I'm never quite willing to rule that out).

for a common garter snake that I have seen, this one has a wider girth in the middle for the apparent length. Also I have never seen one with the white dashed lines to the sides of the central line.

According to this, it's a common garter snake. Scroll about halfway down.
This also says it's a garter snake.

Okay. So I've started making a binder but I've run into a pretty big problem. Take for example, Trachemys (Sliders), which one do we write about? There are a bunch of different trachemys turtles and each of them are different. What did you guys do?
