Re: Snake Road and the Surrounding Area - Sept. 30th - Oct. 4th

Very nice report. I am heading to La to look for 3-toed amphiumas and other amphibians/reptiles. On the way (I live in Michigan) I am planning on spending a couple of days here seeing what I can find. My plan is to travel during May or June.

Thanks to Dr Prof D. Holland, I misidentified the glossy snake. It is a juvenile bull snake.

Thanks Dr. Holland!!

Re: Question re LP Michigan this coming weekends

Careful with the Blue spot identification. There are a lot more hybrid salamanders than diploid blue spotted salamanders.

Re: Herp Hunting West Texas August 2017

I found 103 snakes. Let's see if I can recall the species: WDB, Blacktail, Trans Pecos ratsnake, glossy, bull, night, checkered garter, longnose, blackheaded, desert kingsnake - no mojave. That is it I think. I will have to check my field notes.

Herp Hunting West Texas August 2017

I am not sure if my previous post went through or not. I may be duplicating messages.
