Woo Hoo! After working on my back yard habitat a bit and mowing tonight I found a beautiful garter snake! Check out the video below. Leave a comment on the video on youtube about all the cool things you're finding in your backyard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbDQRM_dieM
Recently I had the opportunity to drive down to one of my favorite spots, the Sandhills of NC, to look for wildlife. I was fortunate enough to find a snake I had previously only longed to find. The Southern Hognose snake, similar to the western hognose that I use in my programs. Like all hognose snakes, this guy puts on an amazing threat display and it did not disappoint. These guys are getting increasingly more rare in NC due to habitat loss and other issues like invasion of fire ants in their habitat. I look at these amazing animals and thank God for his creativity. Only a loving designer could create such a remarkable animal!
Slippy Slimy Salamander Rap Video
I'm proud to present to you the first ever Catching Creation rap video for "Slippy Slimy Salamander"...If you like it, share it! Let's get everyone dancing and let this catchy song about amphibians lay eggs in your brain. You and your kids will be singing along after the very first verse.
In this short episode you get to see some of the other faces involved with Catching Creation. We all met in Union Grove, NC at Chance Feimster's house. Daniel Charles, Chance, Thomas LaVine and myself all loaded up in a small truck and went looking for snakes at some tin spots in Iredale county. We had quite a bit of fun initiating Thomas for his first time on camera, we found a ringneck snake, and got a flat tire. It was an adventure for sure.
