Fieldnotes With Ben Stegenga: Black Swamp Snake



Dive into “Fieldnotes with Ben Stegenga” for a sneak-peak into the day of an Orianne Field Biologist! Through this series, Ben will share with you his discoveries of the day, methods used to collect data and survey for reptiles and amphibians and discuss interesting facts about the wildlife in the area!

For most, a Black Swamp Snake (Liodytes pygaea) is seldom seen due to its use of aquatic habitat, however, for Orianne’s Ben Stegenga, this is just another day in the field! Take a look at the gravid female that turned up at one of our field sites in southeast Georgia!

To learn more about the work Ben and the rest of our staff is involved in, head on over to Orianne Initiatives.
