    I saw this on my ride the other day (Castroville, TX). Big-ass snake someone put over a fence. Nasty.

    What is the verdict on the sock monkey ?? It's not a chordate, but it is washable. Count or nay ???

    Dead possum at the start of the ride. Later on, a dead fox all bloated and stinky. The smell nearly knocked me off my bike. Needless to say, I didn't take a picture of it. There was also turkey buzzard eating the a$$ of a dead rabbit, but it was on a busy road and I didn't feel like adding myself to the count. Anyway, here's the possum. With the snake, we have an even 70.

    I think the sock monkey would have counted if the stuffing was coming out. However, it was resurrected, and therefore not a roadkill.

    Here's another snake, while it was still pretty fresh.

    There were a few dead snakes that day - There was one that had been flattened so many times by so many cars it looked like a drawing of a snake.

    First day out after a long week of rain. I fail at rule 9, however, it was 95 degrees out so that partially rectifies the matter. There was a massacre of turtles. 6 smashed yellow-bellied sliders, all at least 6 inches across. They must have been out and about during the rains.

    This looks like it was a sparrow some time ago.

    I wasn't sure if it was actual roadkill, or just a dead bird.

    So I ran over it with my bike to make it count.

    These photos, yuk! You'll have to take my word on this:

    Live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland - one of the world capitols of roadkill, I've seen the following on my rides - all certifiablly dead:
    White-tailed Deer (Too many to count)
    Grey Squirrel (Ditto)
    Possum (Ditto)
    Black Rat Snake (atleast three or four)
    Turtles (variuos species - no Snappers though)
    Skunk
    Turkey Vulture
    Canada Goose (may have been shot, but found on the road)
    Red Fox
    Wild Turkey
    Bald Eagle
    Nortern Flicker
    Barn Swallow
    Various Sparrows
    Raccoons

    Probably more that I just can't remember.
    P.S. A couple of dogs and cats - do they count?

    The car has replaced the wolf as the apex predator.

    Sorry LostViking. I can't accept road kill history off the top of your head. It's gotta be fresh...

    Anyway, poor kitty. The turkey vulture that was working on this flew away before I could get my phone out.
