Corns in the wild

I went field herping with my grandson a couple months ago and found a really beautiful corn that resembled a hypo. It was about 5 miles from my home in thick brush. Two days ago I saw a car hit a snake that was crossing the road just 500 feet from my house. I was surprised to find that it was a corn, and appeared to be a ghost morph. I was going to try to save it, but unfortunately it died. It would appear that there are both hypos and anerys in my area. The heavy rains in southwest Florida seem to be making the snakes very active and I've found several hit by cars, including scarlet kingsnakes, black racers, corns, and coachwhips.

Sounds like me and my son should take the trip to the other side of the peninsula and do some field herping with you guys. I knew that anerys are relatively common over there but would love to stumble on a wild hypo.

I can't count the number of times I've been out herping with nothing to show for it but mosquito or no-se-um bites. It's hit or miss, with a typical day seeing a lot of black racers and tortoises. I like to take the grandkids to Jelks Preserve. It's 640 acres of wild habitat with 8 miles of hiking trails. In the same area is Sleeping Turtle Preserve, but it's much smaller, with less than 200 acres.

Well I went on a 10 mile bike herping trip and saw black racers, hatchling racers, ringed snakes, black spinytailed iguanas, tortoises, and a road killed garter snake, racers, and a rattlesnake. Wasn't too happy seeing another rattler, as that's the 4th one within a mile of my house.
