    Alrighty here we go folks, we started with 10... lost one... and gained 2 then... lost 6 due to varying circumstances, so we have finished with a total of 5 competitors. I want to say thanks to you folks that were able to get the snake done, I know that for several of you, this was your first snake and being that they are a colubrid species and were small they up the anty on the difficulty. So just finishing this project is a big achievement for you, so again well done.

    The vote will go like this, the competitors have been assigned a letter that will accompany the pictures, you will not know who the snakes belongs to until the end of the poll. Once it ends in 4 days I will come on here and announce the winner and who's snake belonged to who. I will tell you the names who are in the challenge though, They are....

    1. Jeremy
    2. Sam
    3. Jacob
    4. BeckyP
    5. Hoss

    The winner will pick the charity that the 10.00 entry fee goes to and will come on here announce the charity and at that point all who participated will need to send in there 10.00 to the charity. Who ever wins will need to provide a address for the participants to mail it to.

    The voting for the taxinet members should take into account how the snakes match up with the reference picture provided but also they are welcome to vote for there favorite snake they see.

    Alright enough talking, lets get started, here is the reference photo

    Re: Kerby

    What kinda of Gopher snake do you think the reference photo is, I knew It was not a Pacific Gopher like all the ones in the challenge we used, is that one of your Sonora Gophers or is it a true Bull snake which is a sub species of the Gopher snake family?

    Hey! It's Jacob and I want to say thanks to everybody that voted for me. I never thought I would win. I'm 14 and this is my first ever snake. I've helped my dad before but this is the first one that I've ever done by myself. I feel real honored just to be in the same category with the rest of the ones who entered cuz they are professionals. OK so I've done a lot of thinking and if its ok with everbody I would just like for them to donate the entry fee to their local chapter of the American Cancer Society. My pop and my aunt both died with cancer and I think what the Cancer Society does to help people with cancer is real good. I figure if we all donate to our local Cancer Society Chapters we can help folks right where we live--our own friends and neighbors. Anyway, thanks to Jeremy for lettin me get in on this and I think everbody's snakes was real good.
