The first racer photo I kind of over saturated the colors a bit. I still like the way it turned out. Got some video of that outing also.

Thanks. They're known as "Slow Worms" in the UK. Leg-less lizards. These ones were photographed "in-situ" all sharing the warmth of a corrugated tin sheet having recently emerged from brumation.

Is artificial cover a popular method of finding snakes over there? two of my friends here in kentucky wrote a book on snake hunting, which mainly focuses on kentucky but is applicable in other places. They get photos from the UK of tin fields w/ adders, and then these castles in the background.

Their names are will bird and phil peak if you want to look them up.

Taken 5 ft from my front door. The snake moved like it had a feather in it's grasp. Had to run so I couldn't stick around for the outcome. They were gone by the time I got home.

Yes, using artificial refugia is common practice for ecological surveys and for monitoring reptile populations which seem to be on the decline in many places. I monitor a few sites using these "tins" for my local Kent Amphibian & Reptile Group. Having said that out of about 30+ snakes that I have seen this year only the one pictured above was using the refugia. All the others seen have been very close to their hibernacular as expected for this time of year. In a few weeks the adders will have mated and the males will disperse and then they are found across the sites by using the refugia.

I looked up Will Bird and Phil Peak. They seem pretty well known and respected in their field. I couldn't find any of their adder shots though.

Jason,

Will and Phil do not do much herping outside of kentucky. they have contributed 10 % of all data on Kentucky Herpetological Information.

THey also have found several world record specimens of various snakes.

you can check them out on youtube:
