Was doing some yard work yesterday (cleanup) and found these 2 little guys. Hadn't seen any in a couple years then bam, 2.

One under my beer can bin (big 50 gallon garbage bin) and the other under a tarp... We also have ones with red bellies around here too.

Beginning of the summer I came across 2 of these guys.. NEVER seen them around, apparently they are "Ontarios Most Elusive snake" Little at least, I dont like snakes at all.

My son would be so excited while my wife and daughters would be screaming and running inside! At least that's what they did with a tiger salamander!

I showed my wife, she wasn't real thrilled, now the snake on the other hand was, WHY DIDN'T YOU KILL IT!

I saw a Jefferson Salamander at my cottage last summer. They are not as rare or as endangered as they make out. As a kid I used to catch Ring Necked snakes on the Hamilton Mountainside. The are around my cottage as well but I am more likely to see a Rattler.

if I was allowed to id kill all the snakes at work I would, I'm TERRIFIED of them and we have like 8 foot boas in our store. Salamanders on the other hand are cool look at those little blue spots, theres a type of lizard that is native to here I believe you can find them near you rich? A blue line skink or something? The only true lizard in ontario
