Cheatham County is a wonderful herpetology destination. It has amphibians and reptiles typically associated with the Coastal Plain such as Bird-voiced Treefrogs, Green Treefrogs and Western Cottonmouths as well as northern climate species such as Woodfrogs. On this late spring nocturnal stroll (paved trail), the group should hear the bird-voiced green and grey treefrogs alongside toads, peepers, and cricket frogs. Ranids such as green, bull, and leopard frogs should also be calling. Western Cottonmouths are possible. So wear boots! Bring insect repellent, and headlamps if you have them.
