Re: HERP users WARNING

It has come to my attention that a book on Arizona Snakes is in the process of being completed. A data request may come to us from Andy Holycross for that project, which will include range maps showing dot locations. If you have any records in the database that you do not want to publicize in a boo...

Re: CA Chapter trip to Kennedy Meadows June 24-26, 2016

Is the slender find rare because of the type of subspecies or time of year? We've gotten a lot more moisture/kingsnake days in Sacramento this year and some surprising lows I couldn't help but notice. Same thing happening down there? If indeed robustus... only the 13th or 14th known locale. :shock:...

I thought one of the reasons we chose KM, was because Richard Hoyer specifically needed Rubber boa genetic samples from this area, for his ongoing research.
