Re: Boa action, crossed off targets, and nighttime magic

Great shots Jeremy. That was an unusually slow night in Kern County for snakes, still cool to finally run into you and I'm glad you guys managed a Boa! That speck is insane man, what a cryptic animal and a looker too. Keep it up you've been killing it this year!

Love Albuquerque, and the state of New Mexico in general! I had the pleasure of taking a two month trip out to Moriarty last summer and traveled all over the state with a good friend. NM quickly became my favorite of the states I've yet to see and I've made another three trips since then, cant wait ...

Re: My Best Herping Discovery

Nice shots and nice boa! Looks like a solid day in the Gabes. I've tried for those and zonota a couple times but I never do good with snakes in that mountain range, nothing but gophers, southerns, and one cal king for me. I'm due for another visit soon for sure.

Questions about entering NAHERP data

I was planning on entering as much data as possible tonight until I realized coordinates are required. My apologies in advance if this has been gone over in another thread I missed, but to whom are these coords available after entering the record.
What if I don't have the coords?

from the looks of the snake and the info I would say Midget Faded Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus concolor).
Great Basin Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus lutosus) is my second guess.
