Kelly C. asked a naturalist.
“Found this big moth on my walk off Rankin Rd. around pm, possibly injured acting ‘drunk’, about the size of a US dollar bill.”







Tina S.  saw this turtle at the park on her morning walk in North Georgia and asked us to help identify it.









Freddie found this snake outside his porch in Leon County,  It disappeared into the brush before someone told him it was there and could see it for himself.  While he felt assured it is a type of Garden snake – – he thought the snake’s head looks like a viper and asked us to help him identify it.
