Re: 2017 California Chapter Nominations Time

I think the reason that there hasn't been much response to this post is because there isn't instructions on how to nominate anyone. All we know is the current board members. Can someone explain how this process is supposed to work? I've been following this thread waiting for instructions on how to n...

Re: My California Kingsnake segment on Discovery Digital Net

Zach, First off, I think it's great. You did a great job not giving too much information. I've always felt that telling people what county a herp was found in is a great way to answer that question we always get asked..."where did you find that". The only people that may recognize that area by that ...

My 2015 Herping in a nutshell... (LOTS OF PHOTOS)

As the end of the year is quickly approaching, so is the end of herping season here in Southern California. I know there are still some herps to be found in late fall and into winter, but this time of year is pretty hectic for me at work. So I probably wont have much time to herp for the rest of thi...

A couple significant finds for me

Today I went on a hike with some family in East San Diego County and of course that meant I would be herping the entire time. The conditions were awesome today. First find was this Great Basin Whiptail (I think...correct me if I am wrong). I've never been able to photograph one of these before. They...

California Kingsnake morph identification

A fellow mountain biker sent me this video of this Kingsnake he stumbled across on the trail. I'm not super knowledgeable on the different Kingsnake morphs. First thing I think of is highway morph? I'm probably wrong though. I'm sure Ross Padilla or Brian Hubbs could tell me exactly what this morph ...
