Re: Alabama man indicted under Lacey Act

I'm reserving my judgement until the whole case unfolds. They claim he went out for 6 years in a row doing this YET they only "charge" him for 2009 offenses....it's 2011. Who knows- sometimes law enforcement exagerates a bit. Then again the guy could be shady but I do lstand behind the fact that Ame...

Texas Tortise (G. berlandieri) eating bones!

While herping in South Texas in 2007 I found multiple Texas Tortises (Gopherus berlandieri) out wandering in the mornings while I walked the roadsides. Below are pics of a particular tortise that I walked up on in the process of eating bones from a roadkilled mammal about 5' from the road. I've read...

Thanks guys. I agree.- you hardly ever see CBB specks. I'm sure the babies will be challenging to get feeding...or who knows- maybe not.

Re: How much are your feeding bills?(and other expenses)

I probably spend $1200-$1400/yr. on feeders (RodentPro) but that feeds 125+ animals + a crud load of colubrid babies produced. The shipping costs are what really adds up with the feeders- there's a local breeder but their prices are more expensive (even in bulk) that I paid shipped from RodentPro. I...

Hey Monklet, The snake in my avatar is one of my male breeder Extreme Okeetees. He's an "Abbove" Okeetee (lol: ABB ott x l OVE ). I have a project going to try and selectively breed Okeetees with at least 1/2 their dorsal blotches black. I'm hopefully only one generation away. I usually cross this b...

Hi, Graham. Just got back from MI. My wife says it's been raining quite a bit the last two weeks, since I've been gone, but I don't think the Santa Ritas are open, yet. I'll check it out in the coming days. Saw a DBK in the front yard last night coiled and looking for a meal. Hope he got it... haha...

Just got off the phone with TPWD- they were extremely nice and asked me to "spread the word". Herp Stamps can be purchased starting Aug. 15th. but you can't begin using them until Sept. 1st. Just FYI
