Notes

I almost found this one alive and well. I had just cruised this road and had turned around to head back to the main road when I saw this snake. It had just been hit by a large truck that I had seen earlier off the side of the road. I road cruised Bamberg County for about an hour and a half. If anyone is ever down this way, there are many great roads to cruise with very little traffic. I only saw three DOR's (copperhead and garter are records on this site as well), but I think it was just a case of bad timing. A rainstorm had moved through earlier and I think I had arrived just after peak activity.
