New snake species for Wooster Memorial Park

Yesterday (9/27/2023) on a class field trip, my students and I found a baby milk snake (Lampropeltis triangulum) in the woods at Wooster Memorial Park (WMP). In ~15 years of working on amphibian and reptiles at this site, this is the first milk snake I have found. It is the seventh snake species documented from WMP (the others being eastern garter snakes, ribbon snakes, black rat snakes, northern water snakes, Dekay’s brown snakes and ringneck snakes). Hope to see more in the future!
