Qu'il pleuve, qu'il mouille ou qu'il fasse soleil, on la rencontre presque partout ! Hop ! Hop ! Craintive mais sautillante, la grenouille est fascinante. Il en existe de microscopiques,  D'autres sont sourdes comme un pot, Et quelques unes sont venimeuses ... Mais qui connaît vraiment les secrets de son mode de vie ? www.carpediem.asso.fr

The Milk Snake (a species of king snake) like this Red Milk Snake appear to be very similar to the Coral Snake. This apparently is an attempt to look like a dangerous snake, even though harmless themselves. "Red to yellow, kill a fellow. Red to black, venom lack."  The Eastern Milk Snake doesn't resemble a coral snake but instead copies the coloration of the Massassauga Rattlesnake. And juvenile ones are often mistaken for Copperheads.

The top of the Copperhead's head is unmarked. It has a pit on each side of its face, which is used to help it detect bodyheat from prey. Young Copperheads have a yellow-tipped tail. They use this as a lure to attract small animals, such as frogs. Copperheads are usually found in wooded areas among rocks, or at the edges of streams or ponds. They are good swimmers. This snake can be seen during the day during Spring or Fall, but in Summer they are mostly nocturnal.

Grenouille dard poison d' Amérique du Sud ou Centrale, ne la ramassez surtout pas. Longue de 5 cm, elle possède suffisamment de poison pour tuer 20 personnes, ou 10 000 souris. Chaque année, ces petites grenouilles chamarrées tuent une dizaine de personnes. Elles possèdent sur leur dos une matière visqueuse qui contient l’une des substances les plus venimeuses au monde. Les Indiens utilisent ce poison sur le bout de leurs flèches.

Bad tempered This Brown Sipo (Chironius fuscus) is a colorful member of the group known as harmless snakes, though it may not be as harmless as the name of the group suggests. Indeed, the exacerbated aggressiveness and irritability of this snake often results in series of successive, painful bites. 2011 © Alejandro Arteaga
