There is a huge angry Black Racer (Coluber constrictor) in my salamander trap! This was a while back in Western Mass, but it was also quite a surprise that morning expecting to find Marbled Salamanders and finding this instead. After freeing the serpent, it chased me around for a while and then shot up a tree. Amazing climber. #funneltrap #amphibianmonitoring #Ambystoma #Ambystomaopacum #Coluberconstrictor #Coluber
