Ok, thanks. Seems that they are either really rare or just really good at hiding

In Queens, only a handful of individuals were present, about 10. 9 of them where adult dominant males. In mount laurel there were a decent a...

Re: Anoles - enough said

Any one know anything about A. extremus & A. ferreus in Frt. Myers? I wouldn't be surprised if they're extirpated, I heard A. ferrerus was supposedly breading & both were found around the Frt. Myers Country Club, however that's a big area and from the two times I've been there, there is certainly a ...

Re: Tokay Gecko eating Stink Bugs

Yeah, I've been trying to figure that out. I usually run a humidifier at night and some of my walls a have water droplets on them (I don't have sheet rock walls, don't worry). I do plan on picking up some large "house plants" like a palm tree or something with a lot a crevices and overlapping leaves...

2017 Summery

I spent March/ April this on a 2.5 month road trip across the SW & South, visiting the desert for the first time, and spent about 2 weeks in sou...

Calotes in Florida??

Hello, Up here in Jersey its been too cold for herping so I've been focusing a lot of my time on other projects instead of herps. I know, not a good excuse for a herper, lol :lol: But I recently came across an article about Calotes versicolor in Port St. Lucie. When I was in south FL back in April o...

Re: Italian Wall Lizard Populations

I know of a verified population on the KY side of the Ohio River across from Cincinnati. I'm pretty sure John MacGregor, the state herpetologist who works for fish and game has been surveying it for several years. It's even on the Lizards of Kentucky poster :lol: :lol: . Those are a sister species ...

I have absolutely fallen in love with these little guys in the past year or so since I first saw them in Westbury, NY. I am mainly trying to trac...
