Question of the Week – 205

Posted by romeethredge on July 18, 2014

There are 205 different trees in Georgia. We learned a lot in the forestry class at 4-H camp.

This week I was given a snake to identify. A gentleman found several near his home and wanted to make sure they aren’t venomous and he wanted to know what it was, it was dead when I got it.

What snake is this and is it venomous?
