Notes:
There have been a lot of snappers in the area this week, coming up to four total sightings in the space of a week in an area where they are very infrequently seen. It might have something to do with the unusually rainy spring. Also, one female was found by another person dead on the road with eggs still intact, so they might be coming out to breed.
