Graham’s Crawfish Snake (Regina grahamii)
Earlier in the day our group had searched along a river for crawfish snakes and come up empty. Late in the afternoon most of us headed north to Holt County and drove along a road adjacent to a wetlands to see what might be revealed. And sure enough, my first crawfish snake put in an appearance there.

A couple of days later Matt Cage and I returned to the same area on our way back from Iowa to the Kansas City airport. We had a couple of hours available in the morning for herping, and we used them to drive along the same wetlands-adjacent road, where we saw a variety of species including these two adult crawfish snakes.
