Re: Herping North Madagascar part 3 of 3

Hi Dylan Thanks for the support. I was surprised myself getting no replies on any post. Also no replies on questions or requests. I guess it is a tight community here of insiders who only respond to one another if they know each other. I see you are from the US. I have a friend in Chicago area but ...

Re: Herping North Madagascar part 3 of 3

Hi Gecko,

It's a shame your 3 incredible Madagascar posts didn't get more love. I feel like they deserve a bump. So many awesome photos of awesome animals. I had no idea Madagascar had such a rich diversity of herps.
Thanks for sharing 💪🏻

Re: Rought night for peepers: predation by a turtle, bullfrog and beetle.

In my neck of the woods, it's pretty hard to come by calls like that. Awesome footage...except now I'm gonna have nightmares now about that toe biter...I've heard those things pack a mean bite so beware.

Re: The Mattress - An ongoing thread of stories from the field

That's a lot of snakes 🤓 those striped gophers are rad! Crazy you found that one so far from where you originally saw him.

Re: The Mattress - An ongoing thread of stories from the field

Last year was a good kingsnake year, huh? Could've fooled me, lol. Still got a ton of learning to do. Lol! In my experience, the hobby has been attractive to women, especially those that value education/outdoors. However, finding a woman that enjoys to go out and participate on a regular basis is a ...

Re: The Mattress - An ongoing thread of stories from the field

Man...I couldn't agree more. It's truly disheartening when I see signs of habitat destruction likely caused by herpers. We are supposed to be a community that honors and appreciates nature. And it's honestly devastating when it happens to a fruitful location you've frequented and taken care of for y...

Re: Some herps from today - southeastern Virginia

Aw man I would love to herp back there! Really enjoyed the pics of the turtle kingdom and those are rad shots of the cottonmouth.

Re: The Mattress - An ongoing thread of stories from the field

Those multiple snake flips are crazy! I've flipped a few ringnecks at a time under natural cover, but never anything like that. As of very recently, I am no longer privy to any AC sites that aren't accessed by others (as of recently when my all my spots were recklessly visited :cry: ). Gotta find so...

Re: Arizona

You're welcome for the well-deserved compliments...now let me bust out my dictionary and open google on a second tab in order to comprehend your most recent replies. I am tired and lazy, so this post will be much more informal and I'm not going to attempt to keep up with your vocabulary this time. I...

Re: Arizona

I do understand there are many variables that could have a significant impact, and I appreciate the input very much. You are definitely a much more educated and passionate herper than I am, and you brought to light several possibilities that I did not think of or was unaware of (and I'm going to hav...

Re: Arizona

The Crevice along with the Collared lizards that occur in the area... That's what I was told by credible herper who lives in the area. I can't think of another sensible explanation as to why there was an abundance of both species one year, and little to none the next several years. On several occasi...

Good video...keep it up! And very cool (and unexpected) to see a fellow Christian herper!

Re: Arizona

The Blacktail was found just west of the Chiricahuas (hope I'm not being too specific). The picture actually does not do it justice...it was much greener. I love Blacktails - so pretty and so mellow. Thanks for the help with the tracks! I wasn't expecting such expertise. I always like to walk around...

My family and I recently returned from our annual trip to AZ. This year, we spent most of our time in the SE and NW corners, as well as a little time in NM. Here are some of the better photos from our trip (not outstanding quality since we just use a point-and-shoot). Crevice Spiny - Sadly, due to o...

Re: Southern CA/AZ Mini Trips

Thanks for the welcoming and replies.

I never would have known that about the glossy. I'm sure I often overlook unusual patterns like that on less commonly desired snakes.

Southern CA/AZ Mini Trips

Hi Everyone This is my first post. I'm strictly an amateur (and a young one at that), but I love to herp when I get the chance. We've taken four one-day trips this summer, and although we've been unsuccessful herp-wise, there's always other wildlife to enjoy, and it's always fun! I thought I'd share...
