Re: Anuroctonus phaiodactylus collecting methods

I think you've missed your window for the season, but I believe I have flipped quite a few of those big, black-backed, black-clawed scorpions under large rocks in the springtime in the west desert. Ones with loamy brown soil under them, not coarse gravels and sands - so not associated with alluvium...

Re: Anuroctonus phaiodactylus collecting methods

Welcome desert scorps. You might consider introducing yourself on the biography or roll call post. You're pretty new here and while I doubt anyone really cares if you collect and breed a few scorpions, bringing up collecting right away raises some red flags. Keep in mind this is a reptile and amphi...

Re: Anuroctonus phaiodactylus collecting methods

No one can help? I find that hard to believe. Is it because I'm trying to collect them? I know their population can be easily damaged but I will be as careful as possible. I'd just like some tips. Thanks

Anuroctonus phaiodactylus collecting methods

I have found an A. phaiodactylus colony pretty close to my house and when I went back after dark to collect one or two I had a really hard time. I saw at least 15 but came back empty handed. They would sit with their claws out of the burrow (as usual) and when the blacklight hit them they almost imm...

Horned lizard in Herriman, Utah.

Just thought I'd share some pictures of the little horned lizard I found. I had no idea their range went all the way into Salt Lake County. Pretty cool find nonetheless! http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn175/DesertScorps/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsvxxe3zur.jpeg http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/n...

Re: Gartersnake (cyrtopsis) behavior - Rhabdophis impersonat

I have had a wandering garter do this to me. It was actually my own pet. I took him outside to wander around a bit and he raised up and flattened his neck exactly like this one. No one beleived me that he/she did it. Now I know others do this too!

Re: Herpetological survey Camp Williams, Salt Lake Utah thru

I dont know much about snakes but collecting P. Boreus and several other types of scorps would be fun :P if I went could I even do that?
