So I'm bored and decided to write another entry, because I have some unaccounted-for pictures and stories. One I've literally put off/forgot about for a few years.
|Me totally striking out on the Wissahickon with Princess|
Princess and I walked around the lakes a few times this year so far for exercise and came across some easy finds. This month there were a plethora of painted turtles, some we couldn't even get a picture of.

Here's a picture, stolen from Facebook, of my old neighbor with a mammoth snapper she saved from being roadkill in upstate New York! He seems extremely relieved and grateful, and not at all attempting to take a finger off.
Here's one I think is really cool, another unlikely urban herp: a few summers ago, my friend texted me and asked me to ID this critter, who was captured outside a bar near the Phillies stadiums. I honestly couldn't believe it and was SUPER jealous I didn't make this find on my own. Nevertheless, it was a grey tree frog, right in South Philly. I was excited at the prospect of such a find. This little guy looked healthy and was returned to where he was found. Hopefully that's a good indication that there is a population down around there/FDR Park, which would be magnificent.
