Trip Details

Location: Wabaunsee, Chase and Geary Counties, Kansas

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Herpers: Matt Jeppson, Jim Scharosch

Early in the day in Wabaunsee County, I hit some of the old tried and true spots and there wasn't much out. I think the cold temps from the other day did me in. I found a few things.

Black Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus)

Juvenile Eastern Yellow-bellied Racer (Coluber constrictor)

Later in the day, I met up with Matt Jeppson. We tried a spot in Chase County, but it wasn't very good. While I was waiting for Matt, I found this Eastern Yellow-bellied Racer.

We went to a spot in Geary county in the afternoon, and found these three Great Plains Rat Snakes (Pantherophis emoryi).

We also found this Ground Skink (Scincella lateralis).
